I can’t quite believe that we’re at the siblings project for March already, where is this year going?
It actually feels quite funny writing this now, and looking at the photos for this month when we were out in the gorgeous warm sunshine, as it’s back to being grey and chilly again now. I’m so pleased I took the chance to grab these photos of Rhys and Nerys together while we were at the park in the half term holidays enjoying the few days of random warm weather.
We had been to the shops, played on the swings and the climbing frame, had an early picnic lunch and a few turns on the zip wire before we walked over to the big slide as a last stop before heading back home.
The children actually had the slide all to themselves which they loved because it meant they could pretty much do whatever they wanted. They climbed up it a few times, and tried out all sorts of ways of sliding back down, including going down together.
These two can wind each other up something chronic at times, but most of the time when it is just the two of them they get on really well and play so nicely together. They had so much fun together at the park, watching to see what ideas the other one came up with then trying them for themselves.
They are quite different in nature, and in the way they think and how they see the world, which seems to be a good thing so far. I think as they get older they’ll sort of challenge each other more (hopefully in a good way), which will help them learn to see things from other points of view and to consider thinking about things from a different angle.
If you have more than one child, do you think they’re really similar or are they quite different from each other?
