The GREEN brothers - Jerry & Jerome

The GREEN brothers – Jerry & Jerome

The kids came home one day, both incidentally dressed in green. I say incidentally because they don’t come back from the same household, so both my mum and my mother in law dressed them in green tops and white bottoms.

I thought they looked matchy matchy in some ways and was really cute to look at.. and i thought of a witty joke.

Me: Papa!  Look at them! They are 青兄弟 (‘qing xiong di’ meaning green brothers)!

I was actually trying to pun it and meant 亲兄弟 (‘qing xiong di’ meaning blood brothers). Geddit geddit?

Me: Got funny anot?

Husband: hee Hee. VERY LAME EH, but got.

I know this may not be funny to you at all, but i wanted to jot it down because it was a moment shared between the husband and me, and I wanted to preserve this piece of memory so that some day, we can look back and laugh at ourselves again. I find being able to laugh at myself or ourselves is a huge part of accepting who we are and how we are and also a testament of how comfortable we are with each other. and, i really like the feeling.

I didn’t manage to take a proper picture of them at all, because the kids are usually very excited to see each other at home and  would spend the next hour or two running around the house like crazy. Does not help that I think they feel the house is a “paradise” loaded with toys and that they only spend a couple of hours at home as compared to my mum’s or mil’s place. Here’s other random pictures that I took of them the same day, and honestly, I own 2 monkeys.
