In late 2005 I was the very proud (and tired) Mum of an energetic little boy and a cuddly baby girl. They were a delight (any time before about 7pm) and I thought I was the luckiest Mum ever.
My babies were 20 months apart in age, and to this day I look back at that time as one of the most challenging of my life. As well as the most wonderful.
Fast forward to 2011 and when the now big kids are at school, some days it almost feels like I've stepped back in time. Once again I have an energetic little boy, and the most delightful baby girl imaginable.
The biggest change is that these small two are so very different in personality to the big ones. My big two are still incredibly challenging (and still wonderful). They are both very driven, determined and at times anxious small people. My small two are cruisy, easy going little souls who fill my days with cuddles and giggles. I hope they both remain relaxed and happy as they grow older.
And these days I don't just think, I KNOW I am the luckiest Mummy ever. To be blessed twice over with little pigeon pairs who adore each other, who enjoy each other's company, and who are so appreciative of one another is a joy to behold. And yes, we breed them same same (same same). But also very different :)
