While the Things are 2 yrs apart in age, size wise they could pass for twins. We often joke about them being twins.
This morning, Thing One suggested that he stay home from school and send his younger brother in his place. (Thing Two is on week 5 of a 5 week break from school. Thing One has been back in school for 2 plus weeks while everyone else here is off track/out of work).
"Mom, nobody would even notice" he argued
When suddenly we hear this voice hollering from where I thought younger brother was still sleeping...
"Uh, DUH, they would too...you'd get better grades, that would give it away!"
