Waking up at 5:00 a.m. isn’t too bad. Particularly since they both sleep through the night1, 2. One day this week, I snapped this photo just after we got them dressed and ready for school. And the fact that they are both in orange was not intentional. Well, it was sort of intentional because orange is my favorite color but it wasn’t intentional in the way parents can intentionally coordinate twins’ outfits.

1“Sleep Through The Night” is defined, for us, as from the time we put them down (usually between 6:45 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.) through 5:00 a.m. with maybe a inserting-pacifer-will-buy-us-another-hour-of-sleep incident around 4:00 a.m.
