Alike, yet not alike.

Anyone who says twin personalities are alike doesn’t have twins.

Our girls are different in so many ways, you almost wouldn’t believe they are raised under the same roof by the same parents.

If you don’t believe me, you are invited to attend the annual drama in our house that occurs during bath time.

We give the girls their baths one at a time. They love taking baths, so we try to alternate who gets to go first each night. At least that is the theory.

When it’s Katherine’s turn to go first, we’ll tell her, “Want a bath?” Katherine will get all excited, and start to slowly move toward the bathroom. Emphasis on S-L-O-W-L-Y.

On her way to the bathroom, Katherine first has to find everyone in the house and say “Bye, bye!” to announce she is heading to her bath. Then she has to stop and give her stuffed animals a hug, because she won’t see them for about, oh, FIVE minutes.

While Katherine is slowly meandering towards the bathroom, Caroline will perk up, having heard the magical words, “Bath time”.

Caroline will wait until Katherine is near the bathroom door, still happily, and slowly strolling toward her bath. Just as Katherine reaches the bathroom door, Caroline will run toward the bathroom door, pass Katherine in the hallway, duck into the bathroom and close the door, leaving Katherine standing in the hallway facing a closed bathroom door, wondering, "What the hell just happened?".

Twins – alike, yet not alike.

I think I have two Carolines. They don't do anything slowly. Nothing. B&B's similarities may end there, though
