Hanging Out With Our Granddaughters
My husband and I have three-year-old twin granddaughters. Bob’s daughter and the girls live near us, so we have the opportunity to see Harper and June on a regular basis.
On Monday, June 1, Harper and June hung out with me for a couple hours, while Stacey was taking care of some errands. The two hours went by fairly quickly. The girls and I went for a short walk, as soon as they arrived. When we came back from our walk, we used sidewalk chalk to draw numbers and houses on the driveway.
We blew bubbles.
It was a chilly day, so we spent more time on indoor activities than outdoor activities. Inside the girls took turns playing games on the iPad (20 minutes each), read books, watched TV, looked at videos on my iPhone, and helped me move laundry from the washing machine to the dryer. The girls talked with our great niece, Elise, on FaceTime too. Elise is about 6 months older than Harper and June. The girls, all three of them, had such a good time seeing/talking with each other on FaceTime. June wanted to tell Elise that her baby got soaked in bubble water (June caused the bubble container to fall down…an accident…the baby was the only casualty). Harper wanted to show Elise her baby. Elise sang “Jesus Loves Me”. June sang the ABC song, while Harper sang “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” at the same time as June.

Looks like a fun time with the grandkids. They are both so cute!
Your grandtwins have totally separate identities and personalities already and that’s good. My twins were pretty much a carbon copy of each other in all ways until they started school and I arranged for them to be in separate classes. That’s when they each developed their own selves. Until then i kept them dressed in identical clothing but each a diff colour as that was the only way I could keep on track with them buying the same quality and price. I couldn’t figure out a way not to (i was only 16) It was a huge challenge and I applaud their mom for handling that twin issue so well!
What fun, a time to remember.
