They're twins, but oh my goodness, they could not be more different. They are so the odd couple. One is focused, task-oriented, mellow and neat. The other is quirky, flamboyant, outgoing and messy. It's rather entertaining.
Being a mother is really quite fascinating. Sometimes it feels like we have a research clinic where we study things like sibling relationships and family dynamics. I have two sets of biological siblings and neither set is alike--my daughters have very different personalities from one another as well, which was evident from birth.
The great thing is, everyone has a niche in our little family and we really do seek to affirm each individual personality. It can get tricky figuring out how to parent and discipline different types of kids, but it's also super rewarding and a beautiful picture of how God made each of us unique. Not to mention, I get to know and hang out with four very special people!
