Theme Thursday : Girls, Girls, Girls


Bound together by their common girlhood and deprivation of the experience of a mother who knows anything about hair or fashion or cupcake craft, The Girls Es truly are BFF's in the truest sense of the acronym.  



In no way hoping to defy stereotypes, AnneMarie, being the oldest girl, is shy but confident, a rule follower and enforcer, a pleaser and a worrier, and so, so loving that all that responsibility she self-heaps upon her shoulders hasn't drained her natural sense of awe toward the universe. 


And Momo (Naomi Margaret, but we have called her that since birth, because she is just, well, Momo.) is definitely the little darling of the household. Undeserved. Naughty, mischievous, bordering on lazy if loving mothers could dare call such a little boop so, she is more than happy to surrender all responsibility and action to AnneMarie. How could such a tiny thing (the absolute runt of the Es litter, weighing in at 32 pounds at 5 1/2 years old)that loves to be mothered and coddled and cared for in any way, be such a daredevil and pursuer of all things dirty? Every worm and beetle and mole cricket she has ever found have been her special pet, loving them to actual death in her cupped hands, impervious to the fact that that is, well, gross.

  
girls. sisters. friends.

But these gifts of responsible engagement on AnneMarie's part, and adventurous abandon on Naomi's, they give them to each other.  Because you know what? Girls. Sisters. Friends.

Go see all the other girls at Clan Donaldson's Theme Thursday!

  1. 1. It is with something bordering on actual glee that I click over to your blog to see more of your gorgeous family. (not weird)
    2. If I ever develop half the powers of observation and character assessment that you always show with your descriptions of your children, I will be very satisfied indeed.
    3. I have one of those lazy children. Laaaaay-zeeeee. He also loves to collected insects and such and love them to death. He is not as bronzed or as blonde or a beautiful as your Momo.

  13. Lovely girls and wonderfully written descriptions of each of them. For a moment I thought maybe Momo was your youngest because you described my youngest to a tee, but alas I see she is not so therefore I can offer no additional commentary :)
