Short interview with the girls

In the comments section of my last post, Lily asked if the girls understood the rarity of being identical triplets. They really don't. But I decided to ask them some questions about it.

To be fair, we were all having a conversation about sets of twins in their classes when I jumped in with questions.

What are you?

Allie: People.

Anna: Triplets.

What kind of triplets are you?

Anna: Identical

Emily: Messy

Anna: Picky eaters.

What does it mean to be an identical triplet?

Allie: It means that you are part of the family.

Anna: I don't know.

Allie: People would see us and they would just ask 'Are you identical triplets?'

Em: We have the same face, the same hair and the same skin.

Anna: People look to see if we have the same clothes and the same face. That's how you can tell that we are identical. And we are picky eaters.

So there you have it, straight from the source.

It's the picky eaters that really makes it clear!

Love it!

i love it! I've often wondered when my boys will realize they are identical triplets as well. But Allie is probably right...everyone probably tells them that when they go out! Does that ever bother them when people stop you to talk?

Julia said...

Love it! My girls have just realized it, too, and yesterday they cried "twins!" to a couple of identical baby boys in identical strollers at the mall. I never dress them identical, but I guess they've got the gist of it...

Lisa said...

That's great!

Heather said...

I love that they include being picky eaters as part of being identical triplets! Too CUTE (as always!)!!!!
