tender moments


My twins play together quite a lot but they squabble constantly over something or the other…they want the same shoes, the same shirt, if one of them has something the other guy has to have it (and another identical thing will not do…they need the SAME one).  At home they argue and complain to me about the other…but i am beginning to see a very different side to them in school. 

Today there were three or four instances that kind of melted my heart…Nish managed to get his finger stuck in a bench. Sid was playing at the other end of the space but saw that his brother seemed to be distressed so he came running up to kiss his finger. 

Later Nish finished all the water from his bottle and Sid gave him his water bottle to drink from.

When another boy pushed Nish and made him cry, Sid promptly ran up to find out what the matter was.

And when the teacher noticed a large handprint in beige paint on the door, Nish was quick to assure her that Sid was not responsible! 

Nish also picked up Sid’s backpack and carried it for his to the gate before they left school. 



About myfourboysandme

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
