My Triplet Ballerinas… Drama
Guest Blogger: Megan J.
My triplet ballerinas are my daughters Makenna Anne, Jaeli Jo and Maysie Jailyn.
There is bound to be drama when you have three daughters in the house. But, with three daughters of the same age, the drama is exaggerated beyond what words can explain! I can’t even imagine what life will be like in just a few short years when the teenage hormones hit. At age 10, the drama now usually consists of problems related to not sharing or who is wearing whose clothes, and most commonly, “they won’t play what I want to play”. This is a constant struggle and a battle I dread each day, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.
The girls do not realize yet how lucky they are to have two sisters their own age. They have a companion and someone to play with and talk to every day. Jaeli and Maysie, the identical twins of the triplets, have much in common, but their fraternal sister, Makenna, struggles daily to feel included. As they get older, I hope they find special bonds between each other and that one day they will realize how precious their sisterhood really is. I can see it now though: boy drama, attitude drama, friend drama, competition drama and much more I am sure!
Even with as much fighting and drama that has been going on lately, I still see how fast they are growing up. So, I know I need to take a step back and enjoy the time I have with them while they are still young.
