After I had my first child I thought I had everything figured out about this parenting gig. I thought that it would be no problem to have a second child as I have learned so much with my first….how different could a second child really be? Don’t all children do the same things and act the same way? THEN, I had my second child, who granted was a boy and not a girl like my first child. But, having gender differences was to be expected.
What I didn’t expect was the complete and total opposite distinctions in both children from all aspects of their personality. My daughter would eat anything I put in front of her. My son won’t touch any food unless it’s caked in sugar. My daughter takes over an hour to settle into bed and fall asleep. My son falls asleep as soon as his head hits his pillow. My daughter is super artistic and creative. My son is a sports jock through and through.
When it comes down to the more emotional differences my daughter is stubborn as….well….as me :-) My son is the true meaning of the saying “water off a ducks back”. My daughter is independent and only rarely really needs a snuggle and hug from mommy. Whereas my son holds my hand whenever possible and showers me with kisses….even when his friends are watching!
Both children have such great attributes and both have some challenging attributes. I could never have guessed that either would turn out the way they have and each personality would be so thought provoking to handle.
One trait that both my children share is their love of singing. It’s rare that I can get them to sing together anymore but I do want to share this video of them singing a couple of years ago…..I’m a bit bias but I think it’s very cute!
