So there’s this one family we know, and the kids are fascinating to me because they’re a boy and girl, fraternal twins. I dunno, I could go on and on about how interesting that is but basically, it eliminates a lot of confounding factors related to age and birth order, so a lot of interesting things come up. Who’s more aggressive? Who’s more protective? How much is related to gender, how much is just personality? It’s all very interesting.

Anyway, I’m starting to understand what they’re saying more, without having to have their mom interpret. Like, I’m up to maybe 40% comprehension. I wonder how frustrating that must be for kids. Trying to say something but not having people understand you. Anyway, it’s interesting seeing them talk to each other, how they communicate with words I can’t understand at all. Cool kids.
