The two of them definitely go through cycles of getting along really well and...not so well. Happily, after the first few weeks of school transition they are firmly in a phase of adoration. I think the time apart from each other is doing them a lot of good, in addition to the fact they know each have something purely their own during the week.
As a complete aside, on the subject of school, Brighton's teachers have set up a (private) Shutterfly site that they upload pictures to from each of their school days. It's so cool to see what they get up to during the day, and to have that chance to see how your kid acts/interacts when you're not around. But what's really awesome? I get to see firsthand (well, secondhand I guess) exactly what I pay preschool tuition for: gigantic, joyful, educational messes that I do NOT have to clean up!
Anyway, it's been really fun just watching the two kids playing with each other lately, and I've captured a few sweet moments on film.
