My Triplet Ballerinas: Fighting and Fairness
My triplet ballerinas are my grand-daughters, Makenna, Jaeli and Maysie.
As with all siblings, these triplets are prone to fighting with each other. Surprisingly, it is usually one-on-one instead of two against one, and it is usually, but not always, Jaeli and Maysie who are the ones arguing or fighting. Makenna tends to be the peacemaker. She is the one who runs and finds a substitute to whatever they are fighting over so that they both have something similar. Of course, sometimes Makenna finds herself in the middle of a fight or argument and there is no one to save her since her sisters aren’t as accommodating to her! Most times, their squabbles are easily resolved by one solution or another and the three of them go back to being sisters and best friends.
Again, I am sure it’s probably like this with most siblings, but these triplets are all about fairness. It doesn’t matter what it is, if one gets it, the other two need to get it too or you will hear all about it. It doesn’t matter if it is food (especially candy), toys or even new clothes, it has to be fair and equal. This can sometimes be challenging to find three of the same or similar. When they were younger, whatever was given didn’t necessarily have to be the same since they were just happy to have something new. As they grew older and more aware, it was a different story. They were never far apart then, so if you gave something to one of them, you needed to give the same to the other two. Even though they are not always together now, if they find out you gave to one and not all three, you will certainly hear about it! Beverly
