twins

Twins. Adorable. Exciting. Wonderful.

Tiring.

I heartily applaud all you Moms out there who raise twins. I don’t know how you do it.

Twins have been on my mind more often lately, because my nephew and his wife are expecting two babies in December. Our family is very excited about this upcoming event, and if you had to pick a couple to raise twins, Cody and Tenay would be high on the list.

The twins I’ve photographed in the past are busy little men, absolutely adorable, with two older beautiful sisters, a loving, providing Dad, and “SuperMom”. Along side raising four lovely children, and looking fabulous herself, she has found time to be an inventor, and all that goes along with selling her idea and product – successfully.

Today I have the privilege of travelling to another town, and photographing a newborn whose twin brothers are two years old. The Mom to these three is an old friend I haven’t seen for many years. I look forward to our time together, and I am positive that I will come away full of smiles from holding another sweet newborn, a few chuckles from the antics of the twins, but mostly with renewed wonder at the strength and devotion of another amazing Mom.

My Dad was born in 1926 – the same year Queen Elizabeth made her entrance into the world. Dad used to impress us by saying (with a twinkle in his eyes) that he went to different schools together with the Queen.

We thought that made him very special.

Today the thought occurred to me that his little namesake, Leon Gordon, will be able to carry on with that mischievous statement, given yesterday’s birth of England’s future King!

Dad, even though I can no longer see you, your quirky humour continues to make me smile. Thank you.

pancakes

A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, 5, and Ryan, 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson. “If Jesus were sitting here, He would say, ‘Let my brother have the first pancake. I can wait.’ ” Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, “Ryan, you be Jesus.”
