Kindergartener Myles and his pal are best buddies, simply inseparable. Although they had not yet visited one other’s homes, the lads had a great deal of fun spending time together at school.
When “Twin Day” rolled around at Myles’s school, he had little trouble deciding who he wanted to be his double. Myles, however, being a kindergartener, recalled telling his mother Britney Tankersley at night about Twin Day and the fact that he desired to be paired with his close friend Tanner.
Myles would not stop harping on the fact that he and his friend looked almost identical and that he and his friend simply had to pass for twins for the day.
At first, Mom Britney had a difficult time getting used to the idea. She did not know exactly who this student was, she had no method of contacting his mother, and they did not have any clothes that matched.
“He went on and on about how they appeared to be identical in every way,” she said. “Our eyes are the same color, and our hair is the same color,” he insisted, “and we both have black hair.” I head to Walmart, and while I’m there, I can’t help but feel annoyed. I can’t believe it’s already this late. I’m too old for anything like this.”
After spending the previous hour making efforts to locate the mother of Myles’ buddy, Britney eventually left their residence in Alabama at about 9 o’clock in the evening and drove to the nearby store. She discovered two adorable button-down shirts with the phrase “Future Leader” in both of their sizes.
After all of the searching, she did after she went to bed for an outfit to wear on Twin Day, Britney passed away and set on getting a picture of her efforts. She requested that Myles’ teacher take a fast snapshot of her kid and her son’s twin brother for the day.
Myles, who has a cochlear implant, was saying that he and his friend Tanner were twins and looked a ton similar, so she couldn’t wait to see them together in their matching uniforms. Myles said that he and Tanner looked a ton alike.
Britney was taken aback when the snapshot was provided to her by the instructor.
“It is obvious that these two kids are quite different, but Myles was unable to recognize that. If we could all see the world as if it were for the first time through the eyes of a few five-year-olds, wouldn’t that make it a much better place?
After that, she wept uncontrollably.
“I was very much in tears since it was such a touching moment. I am well aware that they do not in any way resemble one another at all. But he did not notice that, are you aware of that? I was anticipating receiving a photo of another white youngster with a fair complexion and brown hair or something similar, but I did not receive any such image at all. And I said, “That is the most adorable thing in the entire wide universe.”
“I can’t believe it. My goal is to avoid being the center of attention at all times, but I believe that the message is more essential than how much it explodes.
Tankersley described Myles and Tanner as “the best of buds,” and the fact that they just live a few minutes apart from each other reinforces this description. Since Twin Day, the families have had the opportunity to come together and spend time together, which has made it possible for the boys to enjoy playdates outside of school hours.
The instructors at Tanner and Myles’ school were overjoyed to see the two boys dressed identically to one another. They all agreed that it was a really moving experience.
“There are usually a lot of youngsters that dress up, and while they don’t all look the same, this was one of a kind. I was kind of put in my place because I was expecting to see something completely different, and that was not at all what it was.”
Britney is absolutely right when she says that if we all looked at the world from the perspective of a child, it would be a far better place to live. According to Matthew 18:3, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like small children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven,” Jesus tells his followers that they will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
