Twin Toddler Revenge


Have you ever witnessed the ninja-like tactics of Fighting Twin Toddlers?

I picked up my Twins from the day care at my gym after a workout, to see that they did a craft for me. When I looked at each girls’ artwork with a puzzled look, the day care staff came over and explained how the crafts came to be…

At the suggestion of making Mom a craft, my Twins immediately started to bicker about who was going to create first {no surprise there}. Evidently Katie won the toss up to go before her sister, and happily gave the pouting Sophia a very smug look. Katie made me a beautiful family tree, she even placed the apples representing each of us, on the tree. Awe….

Sophia was up next, and started placing her apples on the tree to represent her family. The last apple was the ‘Katie apple’. When the staff pointed to the tree and asked Sophia to place it with the rest of the apples – Sophia refused. She took one look at the still-smug Katie, now happy playing with the dollhouse across the room…

…and stuck Katie’s apple on the ground, at the bottom of the tree.

Twin toddler revenge at 2.5 years old? I think so!! Yikes!
This craft is most certainly going in Sophia’s baby book, I chuckle every time I look at it …*ahem* when I finish start their baby books, that is.
Ya, ya – I should get on that.

    Thanks for the laugh at the cuteness. Hold onto your hat for when they are teens and start liking the same guy!

      Oh dear – you just made my eyes pop there, Dianne!
      Laugh while I can, while it’s innocent, right?
      ….It’s all fun and games until they start punching with full body weight! >;{

    I love that you blogged this quirky little event! I have found emails / FB posts etc that I’d written about similar things in my family and I’m so glad I wrote them down, bc they give me such a giggle even years later. :-)

    That is so cute. Laughing is such good medicine. This will be awesome for them to look back at, too. :)

    I just LOVE this story Tammi!! I’ll think of it everytime I work on my genealogy and will never look at a family tree in the same way again!!
    thanks so much for sharing this story with us all!!
