Siblings 2015 – April
I was at the shops with the littlest two this morning and as being served by the sales assistant, a lovely charming lady aged about 70 odd was asking Halle some questions and boy does she make me laugh. Wherever we go, Halle will be in deep conversation with elderly people. She told the lady that her big sister has chicken pox (which went ages ago!), that you mustn’t scratch them, that her baby brother doesn’t sleep well at night like her, and that she is a good girl. – cute or what. it was like I wasn’t even there, she is just such a people person! We then got home from picking Yve’s up and she said to her “oh Yve’s I missed you, I’ve just waited for ages for you today” bless her. Its lovely to spend time with the little two, but boy do we all miss our Yve’s, even though it is for a short while! Its like they are the most amazing little people in their own right, but at the same time they flourish when together.
I watch the girls when in conversation and I just stop in mesmerisation that one day they are going to be grown up having conversations, young ladies sharing their matters, comforting one another like they do now, having the disagreements like they sometimes do now albeit not over a toy in years to come but all the same the way they are now I can see them being this way throughout life. Regardless of the emotions, a snatched toy, a bad mood – these two always manage to make up and are fully aware of how they need to be there for one another. They bicker like a pair of old ladies sometimes, and I have recently heard them say to each other “well, you will not be coming to my birthday party then”, “Oh well, you’re just moody pants” which can be hard getting the right balance of validating the issues and making sure they they do apologise when relevant and restore the love as soon as possible, half the time they do this on their own without me intervening.
I just want them to know that some day there is going to be a day when the three of them will only have each other for comfort in years to come, or whenever that tie may be and I want to know that they will forever be standing there, side by side, there for each other through thick and thin.
(Excuse the grim carpet, we can’t wait to get rid of it!)
