basket of babies

It just does not seem that long ago that I could fit both the twins in a laundry basket.  How is it possible that they are now in 1st grade! ? Time is so tricky and now these 2 would never fit in a laundry basket:

1st day of 1st grade

It is what is supposed to happen, they should grow up.  I know all too well that it is a parent’s worst nightmare when their child/children are no longer growing.  As I wrote here,  I am still trying not to “grow” up Jake and Sawyer in my mind.   I know that there is no point of grieving over every stage and milestone that they will never reach.  Some days it works better than others.

At dinner the other night the twins started to discuss the fact that some of their classmates live with only one of their parents.  Evan and I tried to explain that sometimes parents do not always live in the same house.  This did not get us very far.

The twins responded in unison, “Why???”

“Why would a child’s parents not live in the same house.”

Good question.  Okay, I tried another angle.

I responded, “You know that daddy’s parents did not live in the same house?  Remember we visit Mom Mom and Pop Pop’s house and Grandmom and Grandpop’s house?”

Quizzical looks from both of them let me know that they were processing this information.  After a moment, he looked at me and said, “Well now that Mom Mom is dead does she live with Grandpop?”

Evan and I looked at each other. Neither of us had a response to give to our son. Luckily, his sister answered. “No silly! Mom Mom lives with Sawyer, Jake and Grandpoppy!”
