“Green, green, blue, green!” Bennett says, as he stacks the little disks on top of the tower he is building. The colors, in reality, are pink and yellow.
“Green, green!” Avery says, as he takes his turn at the tower. His colors are yellow and purple.
And now it’s my turn, “Yellow, pink,” I say, unsure what else to do. As with all the games I play with the twins lately, I am the last to figure out the rules.
“One, two, five, eleven, nineteen!” says Bennett.
“One, two, three!” says Avery. It appears that we have switched to numbers.
“One, two, three,” I say, copying Avery, pointing to the three of us, then patting each of us on the head.
“Duck, duck, goose!” says Bennett.
“Goose!” says Avery, and turns and scoots away, and Bennett runs after him. I am too slow, as usual, left behind amidst the Topple pieces, green green blue, one two three.
