Rainbow birthday story for twins?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I was wondering if any of you Mamas out there have ideas on how to tell the rainbow bridge story to twins? 

After I heard this story, I told it to my oldest dd (8yrs) , slightly modified, since she is adopted, and she loved it.  I am planing on making it one of our birthday traditions.  My other two children are twins, and I've been trying to figure out how to modify it for them.  Should I just make everything plural?  I need inspiration!

Here's my blog post with our Rainbow Bridge story in it.

I remember finding this especially tricky last year, as it was the first year we did the rainbow bridge story.  My girls are two years apart almost to the day so we do a joint birthday celebration where we read it aloud.

 

We also have the issue of us not being Christians... but all in all it worked out and our girls love the story!  

 

In your case I think I would just pluralize things, and make it two little angels instead of one, kwim?

Thank you!  Things are much cozier and nicer at home during the cold months.  We're so busy during the summer... no time at all to blog!

Beyond the Rainbow Bridge has an adoption birthday story in it.  It was really sweet, and I hope to use it someday. ;-)  

That's a beautiful and sweet story, WindyCityMom!  Your blog is lovely!
