What 3-Year-Old Twins Say to Each Other

What 3-Year-Old Twins Say to Each Other

I have twins (a boy and girl) and they are my only children.

So, I really know no different. I learned how to feed twins at the same time, rock one twin while the other twin was in my Moby wrap and practically woke up every 45 minutes for the first year of their lives.

My twins are three years old and I’m finally now figuring it all out.

I often feel I’m the mom that never got the notice to bring snack to the library. Or the mom that always forgets to bring toys when we go to a restaurant.

L. and A. playing Rescue Bots. There’s a “fire” on the easel.

Personally, I love three-year-old kids. I use to teach special needs children and most of the kids I taught were between 2-4 years old.

During this time children’s imagination are big, they start to listen to you and they develop higher level social skills.

And with twins, many start to develop a special bond. While my twins don’t speak their own language, I love hearing their mini conversations and rationalizations.

Here are some snippets I’ve caught between L.– my daughter – and A. – my son. Some conversations are with me too!

Enjoy and let me know if you want more of these types of posts.

By the way, I “cleaned” up some of their words as my son doesn’t yet have all his hard consonants.

Pee Talk

L.: I have to go pee…. do you have to go pee pees?

A.: …..yeah

L.: Let’s go pee. C’mon let’s go pee. Do you want to go pee with me?

A.: …..yeah

One Track Mind

It’s bedtime and I’m tucking them into bed:

L.: Can I bring fluffy and bun bun to Gran and Grampas?

Me: Yes

It’s morning. First thing she says when she woke up in the morning:

L.: Am I going to Gran and Grampas?

Me: Yes

L.: Can I bring fluffy and bun bun to Gran and Grampas?

Me: yes.

A.: Can I bring froggy?

Me: yes.

A.: okay.

More Potty Talk

Me: What are you doing?

A.: I’m moving my potty

Me: Where are you moving it?

A.: Here (in the hallway)

L.: A., I’m going to put my potty next to yours

A.: Okay. L., we can go pee together

Me: Okay (moving on…)

Anything

Me: A. what are you doing?

A.: anything

Me: okay

Huh?

A.: Mommy, where’s my chumchus?

Me: L. what did A. just say?

L.: He says where’s my compass?

Me: Oh, how’d I miss that?

Grammar Gone Wrong

A.: Green grapes are better than purple grapes. I like green grapes.

Me: Well, I like purple grapes.

A.: I too Mommy! I too!

What She Said

A.: iPad! iPad! iPad!

Me: Ask nicely

A.: Okay… iPad?

Me: May I please have the iPad?

A.: Yeah! (jumping up and down with a big smile on his face)

My Day Is Never Quiet

Sometimes I can’t hear myself think. My daughter is screaming, “mommy! mommy!” while my son is saying, “Mommy, can I have iPad? Mommy, I’m thirsty. Can I have water?” And of course, my husband is screaming above it all asking me, “Did you remember to sign their soccer forms?”

That’s a typical lunch hour

But, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love my children and cherish each moment I have with them. While there are days I want to pull out my hair, there are more days where I think, where did the time go?

Over to you – do you have any fun and cute children moments? Share them with me, I’d love to hear them all!

Please pin me!
