What are the odds?

What are the odds of having two children born twenty-four years apart in March? We don't know. But when we take into consideration that we had no control over conception of one child, it is amazingly welcomed. Our kids were born in opposite sides of the world. They had a huge age gap that many people felt compelled to tell us it was insurmountable. In plain speak, why would you want your kids so far apart?

What are the odds both came face to face with the Grim Reaper, but it was the GR who blinked first? JJ and SS have iron wills, the type who gives us headaches as parents, but that same steely nature is why they are still here today.

What are the odds that both kids were born in the year of the boar? We were talking about this today over cake and ice cream. Our boars celebrated together

SS said she could not blow out her candles (all four of them) and asked for help at school. Funny how she had no qualms about helping her perfectly capable brother blow his candle.
