[Dutch Lock Down Day Two Hundred Sixty Eight]
First Minion: “Can I have some chips please?”
Boy Twin: “Chips!”
Papa: “Go get the chips and a bowl and bring them here.”
Boy Twin and First Minion race to get the chips – Boy Twin wins, bringing the chips back to Papa first.
Papa: “Go get bowls.”
First Minion goes and gets a bowl. Boy Twin goes and gets the BIGGEST PLATE HE CAN FIND.
Well played, Boy Twin.
But first the news:
- Ministers to meet on Sunday as coronavirus cases continue to rise
- Rutte calls urgent meeting over damning coronavirus figures; Press conference possible
- Grim milestone: Number of Covid deaths surpasses 10,000 in The Netherlands
Now the servings are eaten and Boy Twin has put away and retrieved the bag of chips TWICE.
He’ll put them away, but he’s bringing them back out.
Don’t @ me.
The twins are solidly at That Age  where emotions and situations are more complicated than ever without the language skills to express them – hence SO MUCH HOWLING.
 Threenagers. They’re Threenagers.
There are moments like this when They do things they’ve never done before that shows their new personalities, exploding with humour and wisdom, that make this time a bit less miserable.
