The Gallery: Girls

sisters

I love this photo of my girls together- pretending to be asleep in the hammock with their bears, one sunny June day.  It was taken almost 4 years ago now and I love studying their younger faces to see which features have changed and which have stayed the same.

I love having three girls most of the time but people can be surprisingly negative about it.

‘Think of all the hormones’, they say, then go on to tell me how dreadful their teenage selves/daughters were/are. I appreciate what they are trying to say but really, there isn’t much I can do about it it there?

We are just going to have to weather the brewing storm and hope they eventually grow up happy, healthy, strong and able to look to each other for comfort and love.

All I can do is try to keep my calm, enforce the house rules and make sure I’m always there for my girls, no matter what they say or do.

  1. My response to that? At least you’re going to have 3 of the best friends you could ever wish for (I remind myself of this daily!) – boys tend to leave home and leave their mum whereas I don’t think that girls do that. Gorgeous picture :)

    • As long as they don’t stay at home forever. A friend of mine has both her single daughters living at home with their own children!

  2. Oh, I just love this photo. What a lovely memento of their lives at that time, with their teddies. Happy little girls, a time to enjoy as their lives are so uncomplicated at that time of their life. Not so as they get older!

  3. my dad says he used to see pity in people’s eyes when he said he’d four girls! It wasn’t that bad! And happily he seems to have forgotten about the not so good stuff..

    Love the way all your girls are smiling in their pretend state of sleep – gorgeous photo.

  4. I have a feisty daughter sure teen years will be eventful but like you say – what can we do? Plus I have a friend with 5 daughters and the eldest two have had their hard times but are daughters I’d be proud to have! X
