P for Poles apartย 

Both my daughters are poles apart. Now the mystery is how can two siblings be so different from each other? I think Influence of people, environment, and their choices all play a role when they are growing up.

My brother broke his leg as a child and I never broke a bone. My sister was always very social and extrovert but I was a shy child and we are just one year apart. These are small examples but I am sure, you all can relate to these examples in your families too. Mostly, out of two siblings, both will have completely different personalities.

Now, after few years of motherhood, I can see two completely different kids in my house which amaze me that despite sharing the genes of the same mother and father, the dissimilarities are so evident.

My elder one was always a very happy child, social, well mannered, and often I would get,’ โ€œWhat a great mother you must be.โ€ Such comments were common when I was raising my elder one. She was 3 years old when I and my husband were confident that we were ready for a second child, mainly as our elder one was one of those perfect babies.

I would say she spoilt us as parents and we thought parenting is easy as pie as she never bothered us with anything. So, when my younger one was born, without thinking we expected the similar sleeping patterns and eating habits.

My younger one is completely different, restless, cannot sit at one place for a long time, overactive, and always in a hurry to finish her work. In one word, Drama-queen who always have to have all the attention. ๐Ÿ™‚

But I can’t complain as I believe that every child is beautiful and every child is different. I read somewhere that kids are like snowflakes, each beautiful but uniquely different. I appreciate that my elder one is responsible and down to earth. And, likewise, I appreciate that my younger one is smart and active. No matter their differences, I consider myself a lucky mom.
