We have fraternal twins…they look completely different, have very different temperaments, usually like different things…one chooses neatness and order, the other madness and chaos….they could not be more different!
And, keeping with their individual personalities, we have never tried to dress them the same or get them exactly the same toys or books. It just a duplication of things anyway – the way i look at it.
However, of late i have started noticing how they suddenly want to have similar stuff and do things at the same time. So, if one is wearing an tshirt with a car, they locate another car tshirt for the second twin. If one is eating something the other guy wants it as well. They usually fall ill at the same time too – though i feel that has more to do with them being constantly with each other and passing it on. The newest ‘together’ or ‘same’ thing is using the bathroom. Very very strangely, they both need to use the bathroom at exactly the same time and for the same thing. So even if it a strange not regular time potty – it is for both of them.
Anyone else with similar experience with twins?
