|My silly girls..|
|My little divas!|
But honestly their personalities are very outgoing, confident and capable. There is truthfully nothing they don't BELIEVE that they can do. They have no fear (granted not always a good thing...leaping off a 5 foot monkey-bar because you can is not well thought out on their part, but...). I don't think I've ever seen two little girls who just KNOW that anything is possible quite like these two.
I say that for two reasons:
1. Because my older son who is 8 is NOT that way at all. Granted every child is different and confidence is taught and picked up differently by each child, but he is so much more timid. I work regularly to teach him these skills, to demonstrate faith and the principles I believe in and as he sees them working in little and big ways and his confidence grows.
Knowing my ex-husbands personality and how much my own was suppressed in our marriage I KNOW that my daughters would not have been exposed to confidence, or faith, or the concept that anything is possible. They just wouldn't of. I suppressed my own personality so much in my marriage. By nature I'm very outgoing, outspoken, (I like to think I'm kinda funny too!), confident and (now) an optimist. Those were characteristics that my ex did not appreciate or encourage so by default after 16 years they died. My girls were only 13 months old when we split so they have been raised by the real me. As a result their personalities are very much encouraged to be whatever they want to be, they have that freedom and flexibility.
