Someone asked me the other day to describe my girls. What they are like. Well, that’s both easy and very, very hard. They are the same in a lot of ways, and in other ways, so completely different, it’s amazing they were birthed from the same parents.
- They are all extremely creative and funny. They each make me laugh about 5 times a day, which means I am laughing a good 15 times a day, which must bring some overall health benefit.
- The girls are all very smart. School comes easy for all of them on most days. We struggle through the hard stuff, but at the end of the day, secretly know that they are way smarter than me. “Go play Angry Birds Mom, while I finish my Math homework”. Ha!
- They are all very musical. Yesterday, Belle sat at the computer, playing a game she really likes to play, and made up songs for a solid hour, singing at the top of her lungs. Whitney and I sat in the other room giggling because it was so sweet and cute.
- Maddie and Whit have both decided to take up an instrument. Maddie is playing guitar (her guitar teacher said he thanks God every day for Taylor Swift. Because of her, 75% of his students are 10-14 year old girls that want to be her). Whitney is taking piano lessons from Sarah Koutz, and has caught on very fast, and is loving being able to play and figure out musical notes with her mathematical brain (again, I just walk away)
Life with three girls is both challenging and rewarding. I won’t go into their differences today, because, quite frankly, that’s what Rob and I spend a lot of our time sorting through and refereeing. Another day, another post. For now, we are enjoying the new sounds of music in our house. Music and laughter are a great combo.
