All of my children were born on a Friday and under a full moon
but not Noah and Ivy.
They were born on a Wednesday and the moon was not quite there.
They always liked to do things differently.
They made their grand entrance into this world in a hurry just before midnight on the last night of November, ten weeks shy of their due date..
Our midwife always said there was no way these kids wanted to be Christmas babies
or Valentines babies, for that matter
and today the pair are six.
and as their own entities.
The boy is easy going, out going and personable.
He is the most ticklish boy I have ever met.
The little girl, intense, introverted and shy,
her eyes give away nothing and everything at once.
but together they fit.
They just do, somehow.
It only seems like yesterday that they were born.
Happy birthday babies.
Babies no more.
96 cms is too short to go on any of the rides at any of the theme parks, it seems.
We heard that a lot.
Not big enough.
Except for the kiddie rides, of course.
The one’s that just go around and around
and around again.
The ones that you see the parents riding too (including ourselves)
faces filled with pretend joy
as they sit squashed into the cabin of a teeny tiny truck
or the back seat of an itsy bitsy plane that goes up and down
up and down.
96 cms is too short for an almost six year old girl
because she can’t join in with the others
or her twin brother,
who now towers over her at 120cm.
He can go on all of the rides.
Even the scary ones.
Not that he did.
He held her hand and told her it was okay,
that he would stay with her (and he did).
He told her that you didn’t have to be tall to be a super hero,
as they donned their capes that day
and they both made the most of being together.
He made her height seem as tall as the tallest tree.
He helped her to own all of those 96cms
and she loved him for it.
Yes, super heroes come in all different shapes and sizes
and sometimes in the form of a brother.
