No mine is better...

I caught the girls looking in the mirror yesterday, primping their hair, rubbing their cheeks, fixing their bows, looking at their teeth. Remember these are 2 girls from a mom that doesn't wear make-up, do her hair and spends exactly 4.2 minutes getting ready in the morning.
Eloise: "Esther, my lips are ruby red - look how beautiful they are. I get asked many times a day if I wear lipstick. I won't ever have to wear lipstick because they are so red. You don't have beautiful lips like mine."

Esther: "Well, my lips are pink, and Sister Sara's favorite color is pink, so MINE are better and SHE will like me better, so there!"

I love watching my girls converse. Most of the time I try to stay far enough away so I cannot hear their private conversations.
I hope when they are teenagers they continue to confide in one another. It's so nice to have a lifelong best friend.

xoxo, t.

YES...yes, yes...your true BFF is your sister. I came from a family of 3 girls, so I can attest. When we were expecting child #2, I PRAYED it was a girl so my DD would be blessed with a sister. Well, that was not to be (thankfully, LOL), as we had a little boy so at 39 I did ONE round of fertility treatments to try for a sister for my DD and VIOLA, we had Ava! Your girls are SO lucky to have sisters, so lucky.

Aw how cute... I pray my girls will be close... My sister and I can close but not BFF close. She drives me nuts sometimes. I hope for the opposite for my girls.
