imageAs most of you know Aubrey and Courtney started Kindergarten a few weeks ago. They are so happy to be in school and so LUCKY that they get to ride the bus after their 1/2 day and so LUCKY that they get to be with my best friend WHO GIVES THEM WHATEVER THEY WANT. The words in caps are Brynlee’s, not mine. Mind you, she did the same thing two years ago.

Aubie and Court are my kids who share everything or should I say overshare right from the moment I see them. Brynlee is a nighttime sharer. She loves to prolong the bedtime routine and stay up late with Dave and me, eating additional snacks, asking questions and entertaining us. She needs that extra alone time and even when it is past 9:00 and we are telling her for the 10th time to go to bed, we both love this time too. Cam passes out by 7 and our communication about school is through a communication book written by her teacher, but everyonce in awhile she will share so much about her day that includes what her teachers eat, who drinks coffee, who is doing Isagenix, Shakeology, etc…

Today was such a gem of a discussion with Courtney that I now need to share. If you remember the show Gilligan’s Island and remember Maryann and Ginger you will appreciate that one of my best friends a couple of years ago nicknamed Aubrey, Maryann and Courtney, Ginger. This couldn’t be more true. I will say though that when I filled out the Getting to Know You form for Kindergarten and had to note their similarities and differences, I didn’t say one is a little crazy and one is a little boy crazy.

For example, Courtney will brush her hair longingly as she gazes in the mirror. Aubrey will snatch the brush from her. Courtney will put her head down and smirk at the mention of one of the boys we know. Aubrey will yell that Courtney is in boyfriend mode.

While in our van today after school Courtney asked me if she could bring a baby doll to school tomorrow. I told her she couldn’t because they are not allowed to bring toys, but maybe on the day they share stuff about themselves she could. She then said that she needed to tell me why she wanted to in private. I responded that if she couldn’t say it in front of her identical twin who is in the same class than she couldn’t say it privately. She said alright, well I need to bring the doll, but first can I bring a wedding dress? You all know where this is going, right? She then asked if she could bring a hospital gown.  She said that she and Ethan are going to get married tomorrow and she needs the hospital gown because she told him they were having a baby the next day.

Ethan’s Mom, I don’t know you, but I am so sorry. I will give Courtney kudos for the order she put it in and I hope you do too. We are a great family. I think you’ll even like hanging out with Dave and me, but I am just so sorry if he is telling you about the little girl in school who has his entire future planned.

    I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
