Did your twins stay in the same class at school? Did it change from year to year based on what was best for them or what they preferred??
My ODD is in kindergarten, and we're trying to figure out what school to keep her in next year. Her current one, which we really love, only has one class per grade. But, I'm thinking of my twins (DDs) who will be 3 in Jan, and if we remain at this school for my ODD, my twins would never have the option of being in separate classes later down the road.
I love the idea of having my twins be in the same class, but I also feel that having the option to be in separate classes is important. We think they are MZ (I should get back our zygosity DNA test in the mail any day now...!), and I think there are extra issues that *may* arise for MZ twins if they are in the same class. Maybe it will all be fine and dandy and they'll love being together in the same class, but I am not putting all my eggs in that basket.
Sometimes I feel so misunderstood by other parents who don't have multiples. When talking about this w/ other moms, they've just told me, "Well, put your daughters in different extracurricular activities; that will compensate for them not having a choice to be in separate classrooms." Or, "Having to stay in the same classroom and not having another option will force them to build character." What?? It's times like these that the abyss between myself and non-multiple moms feels very large, and I feel that I don't have anyone to whom I can relate (thank goodness for this board!).
Anyway, I'm sure this topic has come up in the past. More than anything, it's the not feeling like I can talk about this type of stuff w/ my regular mom friends that can make it feel lonely sometimes...
