Britney Tankersley is a mom from Alabama that first heard about “Twin Day” at her son’s school the night before her son Myles told her that he insisted that he and his best friend dress the same. The mom, just like any other parent, was annoyed at the late notice, but she decided to find the boys matching outfits anyway. Myles insisted that they’d make the best twins since they looked so much alike, even though the mom had never met his friend before, and she didn’t even know his size. She managed to track down his mom after an hour, and they headed to the store.
The mom added that Myles went on and on about how he and his friend looked exactly the same. She shared that he told her that they both have brown eyes, they both have dark hair, so she headed to Walmart to shop for clothes for both of them.
According to Britney’s Facebook post she shared the following day, Myles “was adamant that they were identical”.
The mom asked for a photo of the two together, and when the teacher sent her the photo of the two besties in the shirts she bought for them, she teared up.
The photo gained huge popularity on Facebook, and more than 500k people reacted to it, and almost 300k people shared it.
The mom said that she was crying because it was so sweet, and she wishes everyone can see the world in the eyes of a 5-year-old.
