I have three girls right in a row, each 2 1/2 years apart, but they couldn’t be more different. This photo above I framed and hung up in our house because it depicts their personalities and I always want to remember. Monkey 1 in the photos is always trying to be obedient, and at the same time annoyed with monkey #3′s tendency to not want to obey. Monkey #2 is alway day dreaming, sweet and thoughtful. Monkey #3 can’t sit still and is always being “forced” as you can see in every single situation.
In this photo monkey #3 is blurry because she just won’t sit still!
Every day as I take them down to the bus stop this is the routine, Oldest Monkey get out serious faced, getting her things together and heads straight to the bus not saying a word. Monkey #2 before she hops out says her thanks, then an I love you. She shuts the door and walks to the bus but before she gets into the bus she turns around and has a last wave to me. Monkey #3 is out the door before I stop the car and is running to the bus her bags jiggling on her outstretched arms.
It is not only so cute for me as a mom to notice these differences but our neighbor who also drops her monkey off at the bus has noticed as well, telling me the same scenario I see. Monkey 1 straight to the bus, monkey 2 waving to her with a smile, and monkey 3 running to the bus like the bus is about to leave with all her bags not quite on her shoulder.
I love to looks at these pictures, it makes me smile to have such different personalities in my three girls.
I love them to pieces!
sorry about the technical difficulties with this post, hubby is not home to help me and my lack of skills with the computer.
