Hi, my friend. Thanks for sharing these stories. I got such a vivid and wonderful picture of the three of you at the beach, including the twins' chosen activities. Thinking of you.

Interesting post. My twins are very different, but they're both boys. They do have some stereotypically "boy" traits, mainly being high-energy, not as good at sitting still as girls, but they also love to do fine motor stuff, and show a lot of nurturing behavior. N was pretty bummed when the girls in his class informed him that "boys don't dress up in fancy dress-up clothes

Hi, I'm another usual lurker, very rare commenter. I have another book recommendation for you: Pink Brain, Blue Brain, by Lise Eliot. She is a neurobiologist and a mother. Her basic premise is that there are small biological differences between the sexes, but that we (parents, larger culture) tend to respond in ways that amplify those differences. She includes suggestions about ways to

I usually lurk (thank you!), but have been thinking about gender differences tons lately and wanted to recommend the books by Leonard Sax (Why Gender Matters and Boys Adrift) in case you haven't heard of them. He has a research-based and reasonable approach to understanding gender, I think. I have three boys and a houseful of trucks, etc-- these books make me feel a bit better about not

This is the first time I am commenting.
I have boy/girl twins about 6 months older than yours and my experience has totally been in line with yours. Amazing!!

It's fun to hear how they're developing. It sounds like you're mostly responding to their inherent personalities vs pushing them in certain directions. Great stories. Riley practicing word sounds and playing so intently with his rocks sound so cute.

YES. Your kids ARE fascinating. And I miss them. WE miss them. And American Idol isn't the same without you, btw.

I've been pondering personality differences between my twins quite a bit recently. I'm freed from the gender stereotype issues (and even concerns of genetics) by the fact that my daughters are monozygotic (identical).

My personal belief is that most personality traits are innate (but not based purely in DNA), and parents' purpose is to guide, assist, and provide tools for

I've been thinking a lot about stereotyping twins recently, too. I've been trying to avoid the trap of at age 4, defining what my boys are "good" at, though one does seem to be a math whiz and the other a creative genius :) It's hard with twins, constantly having a same age peer to compare to. Must be even harder for the twins!

As a parent, educator, and researcher (oh, and a friend!) it's so fun to read how the twins become themselves. Plus, it's just charming to hear stories of the rocks and the train. I've also found it fascinating to see kids grow and become, and even without twins theirs a tendency to see it all as an experiment. I suspect that with the pair there's even more of a notion to view

I am a twin, and growing up with my brother I would say our experiences as children are in line with those of your kids. My brother absolutely loved to dress up in high heels and have me "do his makeup". Maybe even more so than I enjoyed it :)

Having a twin sibling is a really unique connection. Your kids are in for a fun adventure!



Fascinating, truly!
