Sometimes aliens inhabit the bodies of my children.


There is no other explanation for what happened today at Shiny Red Houses.

While I was otherwise occupied, my children decided that it was Sister Day.

This meant that Rebecca sat with Lily and helped her do her schoolwork. I was shocked when they informed me that Lily was almost done with her work. The shock continued when I walked up the stairs and found them both completely naked preparing to take a bath together so that Rebecca could wash Lily's hair. They chatted and giggled and folks, the fun did not stop there.

After the bath they decided that they wanted to dress alike for our trip to the library.

They were focusing on trying to synchronize their steps.

At the library I could tell that the aliens were preparing to depart. A certain level of irritability was emerging as the hosts regained control of their bodies.

By the time we got home the aliens had abandoned their hosts and the girls were back to bickering. Rebecca had a headache. Lily was hungry.

We all have the memory though, of three perfect hours on Sister Day.

Isn't it great how sisters can move in close and then opt to distance themselves without fear of dips on the friend-o-meter?

You're lucky your visiting aliens create cordial, courteous, sweet girls. The ones visiting my family create klutzy, loud mouthed, spazzy family members.
