My Twin

my brother and I around 1980 or 1981

Ella- 18 months

Ella- 20 months

present day
My little Ella starts school September 6th and she is SOO ready! She will be attending Christ Lutheran Preschool. She will go Monday thru Thursday from 9:30-12:45 and be in their Jr. Kindergarten.
She is beyond excited. She cant wait to meet friends and have her our little "circle" of friends that doesnt include the twins! She cant wait to go to birthday parties without her sisters:) 
Ella struggles so much with being a "third" wheel around the twins. The twins do very good overall including Ella and playing with her but there is some unexplained magical bond between twins that Ella sees and wants.  We have explained numerous times that God made Ella the way she is and she is special, but in her mind if you dont have a twin, you dont belong. Poor thing. 
Looking through old pictures of Ella and me- Ella discovered that she and I looked VERY much alike when we were little and she told me  that I can be her twin.. which I happily said "YES" to! 
But she knows its not the same. She often asks us if we can adopt a little girl that has her same birthday and blond hair so she can have a twin too. 
Maybe someday! 
But for now, Mommy will have to do!
