Our Three Girls

Here is a bit about our girls:

There is Emily, aged 11 who lists causing arguments in the house, Minecraft, causing arguments outside the house and erm... Minecraft as her interests.

Then Alice, aged 3. She loves Peppa Pig, Ben & Holly and being very helpful in probably an unhelpful way.

Rosie is 1 and likes laughing and farting. She also likes Peppa Pig and  the Ninky Nonk.

We have three girls. We never did have a boy and are more than happy with our lot. There are sometimes I think "Ooh maybe we should have had a boy too." But these moments don't last. I realise how fortunate we are to have these three in our lives.




Like when Emily age 11 still wears a pink fluffy "dressing down" for bed. She never did grow out of calling it that.

When Rosie snatches a toy off Alice, Emily, me or Warren...anyone really, and says "SorryAlice"




When all three girls are calling each other names. Poopstink. Yacky. Stinky. Then Alice suddenly takes offense and says "I'm not a poop-face are I Mummy?"

When I've told Emily 346 times to hang her school blazer up and then I say "I'm not going to tell you again" and I wonder what I'll do if she says "Fine." Where do I go from there?



Walking through the park and all three of them have picked up broken twigs and now they're using them as magic wands to turn each other into frogs. "Innn- a- FROG!" and Alice is hopping around saying "rivvet."

When the three of them are in the back of the car and I can hear them whispering, the whisper rises to a chatter, then a yelp and then a high pitched scream because Emily has stolen Alice's nose. Complete chaos in the back until I shout "Emily! Just give Alice her nose back!!"

When I'm at the oven getting the tea out, and up toddles Rosie, pulls on my leg.. "Poo...poo!" and sure enough she is telling the truth.

When it is just about bedtime and Rosie is tired. She puts her head on my knee, looks up and says "Milky-na-night."




So there you have it. We are so happy to have them with us. Grateful and fortunate that they make us smile every day.  They are what we work for, what we think of, and what we come home to and we love them very much.


And if we get bored of having all girls, we can just dress Rosie as a boy.



Just kidding.

This month I have added this post to the Siblings in September linky on Annie's blog Manneskjur.
