They are very different physically. I have been asked on several occasions
"Do they have the same father?"
To which I respond in a whisper "I think so." Then I give the
Their personalities are just as diverse.....
After I told them that Nana broke her wrist:
J-Toad - "Can I get back on my computer now?"
Z-Toad - "Can we go see her so I can give her a hug?"
*Once we were at Nana's house Z-Toad put his hand on her cast and blessed her (doing the sign of the cross).*
When I ran over a squirrel:
J-Toad - "You should run it over again."
Z-Toad - "Shouldn't you go back and take it to the vegetarian?"
After they are punished (this occurs right after my head spins around):
J-Toad - Um - Nothing - he usually sends in his brother to
Z-Toad - "Mom, I love you big whole bunches."
After we dropped off toys to a house that supports kids with cancer:
J-Toad - "Can we catch it now?"
Z-Toad - "Do you think we could go back and I could play with some of the sick kids?"
When I say to them "Look at me when I talk to you":
J-Toad: ROLLS his eyes until I swear they are looking out the back of his head.
Z-Toad: "I am looking at you my beautiful mother."
Before Christmas, the boys school holds
J-Toad: Came home with 20 candy canes (.25 each) for himself. And a bell on a ribbon around his neck that he made in class.
Z-Toad: Came home with a present for J-Toad and TWO presents for me. He was beside himself and begged me everyday to just open his presents.
So when Christmas Day came, Z-Toad looked like he would internally combust if I did not open his gifts first. And - TADA!!!! - here it is. Z-Toad made sure to point out that both are in my favorite color!
I know you all be hating on me - jealous bitches - all this for just $3 - who is stylin' now??
The ring is perfect for any finger as it comes complete with a pinch clasp!
Yes - I wore them all day.
Yes - My finger and ears turned green also. But it is my favorite color so WIN!
Yes - Zachary lifted my hair most of the day - even suggested a haircut - to see the earrings.
J-Toad feeling somewhat guilty for not purchasing anything for anyone gave me this card:
Inside the card was the bell on the ribbon that he made in class.
The item that cost him $0.
Technically making his Christmas present to me also
