Cuddling two babies, feeling their heart beats against mine.
Smelling two babies, absorbing their fragrances of innocence.
Kissing two babies, marveling that they are mine.
After what seems like a long wait.
A fleeting amount of time is all we have because they grow up so darn fast.
When they were little, some days dragged on.
I would roll my eyes when others told me that they grow up very quickly.
On the days that go by in a blink of an eye,
I would cling onto them until they peeled away from me.
From diapers and milk bottles to undies and eating more food than their parents.
From sleep deprivation and non-stop illness to putting themselves to bed and building immunity.
My twins are going to Primary School next year.
We went for the Prep Enrolment Interview this week as a family.
The twins were authentic and cheeky throughout.
We looked on with pride and humour.
Happy little Vegemites, they certainly are.
Proud as a punch, we certainly are.
