I'm blessed to have two sons that are 18 months apart. Let me talk talk about the disadvantages first of all. Potty training two boys at once, I have to be honest, is a huge challenge. That, perhaps, it is turning around and maybe they are helping each other in the process, as well. It is certainly very intensive, this time in our lives. We are right here dealing with the tantrums, et cetera, but for them to be growing together and hopefully, continuing to be the best friends that they are now and throughout the rest of their lives, is just a wonderful thing to witness. As a photographer, I can't resist trying to capture the love within them. It is very uplifting.
