Separation Anxiety

Twins have an interesting relationship - mine do EVERYTHING together.

Earlier this week C stayed home sick from preschool and I delivered E solo. Upon arriving he greeted the Aid with slumped shoulders, "I'm E, C is sick today." and promptly BURST into tears! "He isn't coming and I think I'm going to cry the whole time." Their kind teacher intervened, "It's ok, would you like to play play-dough?" "Sob, sob, gulp - Yes, ok. Sob Sob." Ahh this is very sweet and despite feeling sad for E, it warmed my heart that he loves his brother so...

Skip t
o later that afternoon...E comes running into the room in tears, he and C have just gone to blows about something, he says, "Mom, I need to say a prayer." Amazed by his spiritual side, I am moved. "Pray for those that hurt you," I think in my head, but then I listen. "and please bless C will go to heaven with you God, and stay there, and I will stay here with Mommy. Amen."

Sigh, oh brotherly love....

Well, at least he turned to the lord and wasn't trying to sell his sibling to make a buck.

Very spiritual child.

I used to pray that about Jenny all the time. You can see how well it worked.
