Eleven years ago when we discussed having children, we decided that if we were going to go through the trouble of having one child we would definitely have two. Together, they have tracked in twice as much mud, caused twice the damage to our house, and given us twice the doctor and dental bills. We’ve also lost twice the sleep and had to ingest twice the caffeine. (I didn’t become a daily latte drinker until our second was born. True story.) But, sometimes, I see them together and I know we made the right decision. They are the best of friends. And, now, we have twice the love.
