Motherhood such a "Blessing"?

I have been blessed with 3 little girls who I love and adore on most any day of the week. These blessings were bestowed upon me with 21 months. The Lord apparently had a sense of humor when he doubly "blessed" me with my twins. My girls are beautiful, funny, bright and at times the cause of my insanity! Juliann is my oldest at 7 years old and the twins Kayla and Kenzie are 5 (and a half, as they are quick to remind me).

When people think of twins they automatically think they are going to act the same or look the same, at least have some similarities. Such is not the case with mine. My Kenzie is "My Scarecrow". I gave her this nickname after watching The Wizard of Oz. When Dorothy says goodbye to her friends she says, "I think I will miss you the most Scarecrow." Kenzie is my tender-hearted, quiet, content with being by herself child. She is my budding artisit. She writes at almost the same level as her older sister and is starting to recognize her sight words.

And then there is Kayla.... she is my free spirit. As I am writing this she is putting a dress on her Ken doll and throwing him down the basement steps yelling "fly baby fly". She is the one who at the Dr's office will not cooperate during the eye exam. When prompted by the Dr. to tell him what letter he is pointing to on the eye chart she responds "what letter do you think it is?"

At age 3 she would not tell people her real name. She would go for weeks referring to herself as "Rollerskate" , "Eyeshadow", "Fishtank" or my all-time favorite "Princess Flower wearing dress and lots of makeup".

Kayla is definitely the one who is turning me and my husband grey. The one who was the main factor in deciding to wait a year to send the twins to kindergarten. And she is the one who reminds me so much of ME when I was little. So I guess my mom got her wish... for me to have a child just like I was! But you know what? I wouldn't change it for the world!!!
