“They fought over their first article of clothing this week, which is crazy because they have such different styles.There’s a pair of tie-dye leggings that they both bee-lined for, and it was a knock-down drag-out fight. They took turns wearing them. Dolly wore them on Monday, Charlie wore them on Tuesday and Dolly wore them on Wednesday. They dress themselves. We had a little last minute wardrobe panic as we were leaving because Dolly said that she wanted a dress that looked more like mine. She was wearing a gray ruffle dress and she said she wanted one that looked more like mine, so we quickly grabbed this one.” – Rebecca on her independent twins.

“I’ve had to cut down on wine drinking, big time. I’d fall asleep for an hour, and then be wide awake! Every once in a while, I’d toy with the idea of, ‘I can be a cool mom: a party girl at night and a mom in the morning.’ But I’d regret it every time. Because those girls wake up at 6 a.m. no matter what time you come home! Sleep is so important. But as soon as you become a mother, you’re always a little bit awake, because your one ear is always sort of listening.” – Rebecca on motherhood.

“I’m trying to force them into the entertainment industry. My wife is a little more, ‘Let them find their way.’ I would love for them to be on the Disney Channel. Maybe with a twins show of their own. Maybe they’re the new Olsen twins!” – Jerry jokingly professing his desire for his daughters to follow in their parent’s footsteps.

    Happy 5th! Can’t believe how big they’ve gotten since the Got Milk ad when they were babies.

    I don’t follow Rebecca or Jerry’s careers, but I always find myself taking an extra few seconds to look at pics of them with their kids. Cute family.
