My Girls…January 2018

My Girls…January 2018

It’s seem ages since I last wrote about my girls, but with Christmas a decent memory and us getting back to our normal life of school runs and lazy weekends its that time of the month.

One of my favourite things about the school holidays is that it gives the girls a chance to spend a good chunk of time together. Without school and preschool they get to be together 24/7 and they love it. You can see them reconnecting, their relationship strengthening and them having the best times.

I still have to pinch myself that I’m lucky enough to have two girls, to give them each other is by far my greatest achievement.

Life now is pretty much these two glued together. I come down in the morning and they are sat as close to each other as possible having their breakfast. I will find them camped under the dining room table in their den, having the funniest of chats. I glance in my mirror in the car and see they are holding hands as they chat about their day after school.

It honestly melts my heart.

But what also comes with a fiercely close relationship, is the squabbles. They are like no other, as you can only ever treat your sibling shockingly one minute and hugging the next.

Andy is an only child and it’s really interesting to hear his thoughts on the girls. He just doesn’t get it. Whereas I just roll my eyes and remind myself that my brother and I were just the same.

My photos this month were taken when we woke up to snow and the girls couldn’t get dressed quick enough to get outside to play in it. We knew it wouldn’t last long and we wanted to make the most of it.

It was impossible to take any photos of Holly, she is like tigger, just bouncing around!

The moment Alice throws a snowball at me and I capture it on camera….thankfully it didn’t hit my camera!

    Lovely photos, so cute. I love the holidays, seeing my two just play with each other 24/7 without school interrupting them, it’s great.

  2. Sweet pictures! My eldest two are girls and are similarly very close, while also going through intense squabbling phases! I guess it’s their grounds for learning how to ‘do’ relationships!

    Lucky that snowball missed! I long for my two to be like this although at the moment the youngest seems more content on wacking the big one. But just as you say the time time is kisses and cuddles before bed! Such gorgeous photos xx #Sibilingsproject

  5. Love that final photo with them on the sledge together. They look like they were having a wonderful time together. It is lovely to see that bond between them and it’s one of the things I love about my two girls too – that wonderful closeness that they have – and yes, with it comes squabbles! All part and parcel fo siblings life though!#siblingsproject
