Sugar and Spice and Not Always So Nice

Posted 06-21-2011 at 01:57 PM by whitneywalters

I am sure that everyone has heard the old saying about little girls, you know the one. What are little girls made of? Sugar and spice and everything nice. Now, if only that were true all the time I know my life would be a whole lot easier.  I am due with my fourth child and my third girl, she will be making her grand appearance into the world sometime this July. I love being a mommy of many girls but I do have to say it has presented some unique challenges.

Let me start out by telling you a little about my girls, just to give you a better understanding of what I have come to know as a mother of daughters. My oldest daughter, Destiny, will be four in August. We knew from the moment she was born what her personality was going to be. She was a very challenging baby, very demanding and from a very young age was very dramatic. She was not even a year old when she developed her love of shoes and all things glittery. She loves nothing more than babies of all kinds! She has more dolls then anyone I know and she loves and cares for each and every one of them. Her second favorite thing in the world is dress up. She loves pretty dresses, pearls and over sized shoes. She spends the majority of her day playing princess or some other fantasy game. She is also very smart,  can be very sweet, very loving and very charming but she also knows how to push your buttons, throw a major fit and is more emotional than any other child her age that I have ever met. While she enjoys playing outside she is not rough and tumble at all. She likes to swing and play but would rather pick flowers or have an outdoor tea party.

My middle daughter, Kairi, will be two in July. She was a very mellow baby from the very beginning, always able to keep herself entertained, pretty much only cried when she needed something or when she had an ear infection. She is most definitely the polar opposite of her older sister. She does not like hair bows, girly things or pretty dresses.  She would rather be nude and barefoot than anything else. She loves the play in the dirt and sand and is more rough and tumble then her sister ever has been. Even though we are entering into the terrible twos, she is still pretty mellow. The differences between these two is pretty unbelievable at times.

While I do not know what the youngest will be like yet, I am sure she is going to be very different from the other two as well.
