At the risk of sharing just a tad too much of my personal live with the rest of the world, I kinda feel like talking about the apple of my eye today – my little power duo. Or should I call them the appleS of my eyeS? They’re both very unique characters, so I guess I should really be using the plural here. There’s nothing worse than treating twins like one and the same person.
Anyways, for the first 19 years of my life I was an only child. It obviously has its advantages and disadvantages, like most things in life, but I always wondered what it would be like to have siblings. There were many moments in my childhood and adolescence where I felt alone and misunderstood by my parents. If only I had a sister or brother to share my feelings with…but then I saw how much my friends fought with their siblings, and the sacrifices they had to make. As I said, there are advantages and disadvantages.
When my dad told me I’d have a little sibling I didn’t know what to feel. When he told me it was gonna be twins I got outright scared. But then my little brothers were born, and suddenly my heart opened up, and I felt more love surging through my body in a second than in my whole life beforehand. Holding them in my arms for the first time was an incredible feeling. Those tiny bundles of joy that would eventually grow into real human beings were the greatest gift anyone could have ever made me.
Almost six years later, and I’m still mesmerized. How can two little people fill my heart with so much love and joy? Although the age difference is rather huge, I’m a big sister through and through, and I wouldn’t give it up for the world. Things are obviously different when you’re an adult and your brothers aren’t even in school yet, there isn’t so much fighting I guess…more spoiling, but I’m glad I was given the chance to experience the pleasures of having siblings after all.
