He said, she said

It was bound to happen sooner or later.

I held up a foam number 5, ripped in two. "Who broke this?" I asked.

Petey pointed at Angela. "Angewa did it."

Angela, just as fast, pointed at Peter. "No, Petey did it!"

I asked again, and this time got simultaneous responses, "Petey! No, Angewa!"

Paul pointed out that they were probably both yanking on it at the same time and were both to blame, so they actually were telling the truth. Either way, Sophie, who was absolutely delighted by this exchange, thought it was a hoot. And so did the twins, because now whenever we ask who did something, their automatic response is to blame each other, even when it turns out that Sophie did it! Now if they could just keep their pajamas on and stop running around naked, we'd be getting somewhere...
