It’s quite amazing to watch your children grow and bond in front of your eyes. To see the love and hate each other in equal measures. To imagine the friendship that will be there in years to come.
Izzy and Chloe spend many hours squabbling and fighting, snatching toys and being jealous of every minute the other gets attention from us. Lately though I’ve seen a shift. Yes the anger and niggles are still there but there is a real relationship developing. They play together, pretending to be mothers and babies. They chat to each other and laugh at one another. It’s a real joy to see. The moments may not last long but they are there and they are becoming more frequent.
I’m sure there will be many ups and downs between them over the years and I know it will be challenging but for now I’m enjoying these moments.
