Night and Day

My kids are very different from each other.  Addi is, well, Addi.  She's a spaz... full of life and adventure and fruit snacks and piss and vinegar and is hell on wheels from the minute she wakes up until the second we convince force her to bed.  Our bedtime routine takes, on average, 45 minutes, and at least once a week we give up after two hours and just let her sleep with us, for the sake of family.  And, she wakes up swinging 90% of the time, grumpy and mad to be so rudely woken up.  She's loveable and funny and caring but most definitely hot or cold, no in between.

Sam, on the other hand, is a lover from dawn to dusk.  She loves to give hugs, pat babies, and snuggle wtih Mommy.  She's getting a tad fiestier at school but mostly, she's a sweetheart.  She is also quite possibly the EASIEST child to put to bed each night - literally, lay her in her bed, give her a blanky and close the door.  And 90% of the time when you go in her room in the morning, she looks like an angel.   She doesn't alway smell like one, but wow, is she cute.

This morning:

And from the moment she wakes up she's happy and smiling
(except when mommy is taking her picture with a flash, like today.)

These two are as different as night and day.  And I really wouldn't have it any other way.
