To their benefit, I only said "Pick up your O's".  I didn't specify that they had to use their hands.

It's funny, and a little sad, too...Guy and Chase are basically at the same developmental level.  They like the same things.  They think almost the same way.  They laugh at the same stuff.  They do the same things to each other simply to be annoying.

I am in a love/hate relationship with this.  I love that they have this "twin" relationship right now- they are best buddies.  I hate that I can't stop fast forwarding my mind into the future and wonder what will happen when Guy grows up faster than Chase and passes him by.

I know- I KNOW- that Chase has (and will always have) the best brothers for him.  And another part of me (probably a bigger part) completely accepts and understands Chase as he is.  But the momma-make-it-all-better part of me will always be anticipating a time with Chase may feel left out.  I think that is the part about Ds that will never ever go away- just that little pang of "what-will-happen-if/when..." that will never be completely gone.

I hear that. Wouldn't it be nice to turn off the worrying?
