Nightly Broadcast

Sleep is not on the agenda this evening. At least not for Swee’Pea as she has decided to entertain her audience of one. She is holding court in her crib while TheMonk listens in – very willing to be entertained. Her performance is also being broadcast over Baby Monitor radio to an audience of two – Mommy and Daddy.

Swee’Pea is in rare form this evening. It appears to be a variety show as Swee’Pea switches from singing to story telling to telling jokes. The jokes, it appears, are TheMonk’s favorite. However, it appears to be the same joke over and over again as the punchline is a low, gutteral bark that TheMonk thinks is hysterical. His laugh is so genuine and full of joy and Swee’Pea loves the feedback as she laughs out loud whenever she hears TheMonk’s laughter.

Mommy and Daddy love the laughter too. We sit and listen to the baby monitor and laugh out loud as our two little cuties play together in the dark of their room. After a while we look at each other and marvel at how wonderful having two is. Watching them grow together has been a joy and we feel so very fortunate to have them. We are truly lucky.

And listening to them fall asleep to each other’s voice we are reminded that if TheMonk and Swee’Pea have nothing, they have each other. And how wonderful is that?


  1. What a wonderful memory they’ve just made for you.

    Happy New Year!

  2. Listening to my two interact over the monitor is truly one of my favorite things about having twins. I totally relate to how y’all felt.

  3. My father used to tell me that the closest kin you can ever have is a brother or sister.

    I never put a lot of stock into that, because I suspected he was trying to get me to be nice to my little sister.

    But, as P.Pie enters the final trimester, I know that the closest kin you can have is a twin sibling.

    Obviously, TheMonk and Swee’Pea already know this.

  5. My 2 kids do that as they share a room. They’re 4 years apart, but the repetition of funny stuff goes on and on and on some nights or mornings.

  6. Those two are lucky to have each other. Too cute. I have a brother who’s 11 months older than me and sharing a room with him as a child was the absolute best. Bedtime may have been 8pm, but sleep-time was a different story.
