More than just sisters
My eldest two girls have a difficult – love/hate – relationship like most sisters, and very unlike the twins who are more like best of friends and always have been since the shared the same cot when we bought them home from hospital.
They continue to enjoy each others company, share toys, friends and show considerable empathy for each other even though they are not identical.
For the first couple of years though they looked so alike that we had to dress them in different coloured clothes so we could tell them apart and they still have their names on their school jumpers to help their teachers call them by name. In fact for the first year or so the only way to distinguish them was by a small birth mark that one of them has on her back.
