When I had children I expected them not to get on, coming from one of four who rarely saw eye to eye I did not really know any different.
But when you come into the “parent blogging” world you have many families come into your home (through a computer) and I started to wish a little that I to would create those siblings, the ones who are the best of friends, that look sweetly at one another in pictures, who share lovingly.
And for 10 minutes of every day they are, Deacon longs for Addison when she is at school, asking many times a day “When are collecting Daddy (Addy)?”, at the same time she is always looking for a playmate, someone to be best friends with at home.
But it just isn’t the case, they are so different in their personalities, chalk and cheese. Nothing gives me more pleasure though when moments like above happen, they have so many joint loves, Pirates, Dinosaurs, playing Doctors…so maybe as they grow older and the developmental gap does not seem so great they will realise they could literally be the best of friends!
