"To be playful is not to be trivial or frivolous, or to act as if nothing of consequence will happen. On the contrary, when we are playful with one another, we relate as free persons, and the relationship is open to surprise; everything that happens is of consequence, for seriousness is a dread of the unpredictable outcome of open possibility. To be serious is to press for a specified conclusion. To be playful is to allow for unlimited possibility." -James Carse

Oh, I want in on the joke! What's prompting all these giggles?

I am embarrassed to say that when I first started looking at your blog, I thought your two wonderful little men were identical twins. Now, they look so different to me that I wonder how I ever could have thought that. Did you know from the time they were very young that they were fraternal? I'd imagine so, since you obviously would have seen so much more than a drive-by blog reader would see.

Those threee sure do smile and laugh a lot. Glad you posted pictures of their "normal" behavior!!

Yet again, more evidence that our families are so similar (soc of childhood, super cute preschool twins, having an amazing Mormor, Waldorf...)! You must also subscribe to The Sun. Isn't that magazine great?!

Christina, Yes, we suspected from the first photo we got of K & O that they were not identical. But believe me, we STUDIED that photo in depth for MANY MANY MANY hours!!! LOL! Even now, though, in some photos from when they were babies, it is virtually impossible to tell which one is which. And, just to make you feel better-- K & O themselves often have a hard time knowing which is which when they look at photos of themselves, even now!

Mom, Yes, as you know very well, these photos document their "normal behavior" very well. Did you ever know a happier kid?!

Laura, Yes, The Sun! My sister gave me a subscription to it for my birthday. It is now one of my all-time favorite magazines!!!
