Sisters: Taking Off the Training Wheels, Memorial Day Weekend in Bay Head, New Jersey




My two daughters are 13 months apart. When I was pregnant with London, I had hoped for twins, but ending up with "Irish twins" when Maddie was born has been so much better. They have been joined at the hip since London cried out with glee, "Maddie OUT!" when I brought her sister home from Lenox Hill Hospital to our co-op on West 12th Street in the West Village.

I took this picture yesterday in Bay Head, NJ, when we took the girls to a loop of sidewalk they call the "lollipop" so that Maddie could take her first shot at riding the straightaway without training wheels. As I was getting ready to hold the handlebars to steady the bike for Maddie, she wailed, "No, Mommy, I want London to help me!" They both came home covered with scrapes and bruises but with matching huge smiles across their faces.

Oh here are the cuties!! Just two girls Roxy? I'd love to get a pair of girl-boy twins he he...but there's no twin genes in the family, so that's quite unlikely yeah? Hugs for the cuties, they seem to be very close. :)

Hey Roxy, sorry I haven't been around much. My oldest two girls are 19 months apart, and now they are a teen and a tween, they fight all the time. But when they were younger, they had moments like this.
