Same parents, different kids

Same blue eyes, different freckles

Same sets of genetic material, completely different personalities

Same love for their mum and dad, different ways of expressing it

Same opportunities, different interests

Same bedroom that they sleep in together for now, will be different very soon and my heart will be a little sad at the end of this era of bedtime giggles and chats

Same requests for lollies (anytime and everywhere), different choices from the lolly jar

Same loyalty to their close friends, different relationships with their besties

Same height and shoe size, to be different very soon as the youngest over takes his sister

Same warm bodies that come cuddle in bed in the early mornings, different needs for affection

Same love of the outdoors, different desires for discovery and adventure

These two. So much the same yet so different.
