I'm glad I have two girls.
I'm a mum who would have been quite happy to have five boys. But I my girls are my precious little treasures. I remember finding out I was having a girl when I was pregnant with Lani and wondering what to do. I had no idea how to raise a girl - and I'm still learning :)
I'm a bit more of a tom boy at heart so my girls help me to dig deep and find my inner princess.
I am so grateful for the both of them and today I fell in love with them all over again as I spent the morning getting them all dolled up for church. I take 5-10mins to get myself ready. I pull my hair back in a pony tail or finger comb it and leave it down, throw on some clean clothes, put a bit of eye liner on and some lip gloss. Often I do it all while the family are getting into the car. Getting the girls ready however, takes a bit longer. There are dresses to co ordinate (they usually like to wear the same thing) hair to do, a bit of lip gloss to put on if they catch me with mine.. and more often than not, nails to polish.
This morning they wanted their hair crimped. Thank goodness for afternoon church - I never brushed my kids hair last year when we started at 9am ;)
Lani was also extra excited this morning as she could finally take out the studs she has had in her ears for the last 6 weeks. She had her ears pierced and needed to leave the original studs in up until today. She chose some little flowers to wear to church.
I don't know if others agree but I think my girls look completely different from eachother. Lani is fair like me with straight hair while Sisi is dark like Job with curly hair. I took these photos today as I think its gorgeous how they try their best to look the same.
I think they are beautiful xx
