Equal Time for Equal Twins

Since I posted my little girl's responses to the questionaire, I feel it's only right to do the same for her twin brother. This is the constant tension I feel to do the same for each of them. It's not the same with their little brother. Often he is not included in certain things for one reason or another. This year we are "homeschooling" which simply means we read a LOT of books and practice writing letters and numbers. Currently we are using "Teaching Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons". It's stressful to balance time with each twin and to design lessons/time based on each of their personal needs. And then there is the compettition aspect. It's one thing if the twin gets an answer right and their brother (2 years younger) does not. He's little. No pressure. When one twin gets something and the other does not, all Hades can break loose. It's especially hard on my son. Can't let a girl beat ya! We've never told him that but somehow, it's innate in little boys, I think.

Okay, so I had to vent that because it's a current struggle here in twinland. But back to my original purpose for post, here are Boy Wondertwin's answers to my 21 questions:
