Quadruple the Trouble

Nowadays four is considered a big family. We seem to attract attention everywhere we go. People are amazed when they find out we have two sets of twins, and I love when total strangers walk up and compliment us on how well behaved our kids are. After one such outing, I was laying in bed thinking about each of my four children is so different. Each on has their own unique features. For instance:

James-Jamie loves to read, loves to talk to adults, and loves to please. He can occasionally pick on Linda, but for the most part is a helpful easy going kid. He loves Science Fiction and video games.

Linda-Linda is the most difficult of my children. If she wants to do something she does it, regardless of right or wrong. She hates to read, and has little patience for video games. She prefers to play in her own little world where she can control all aspects. She is very imaginative and definitely and individual.

Noah-Noah is my little tank. He is all boy. He is rambunctious, curious, and very bright. He loves to be read to and loves to act out what happens in his books. He likes to snuggle, but after a while will want to rough house instead. He has a little bit of an ornery streak, but only he is allowed to pick on his Mina. He is so much fun.

Mina-Now Mina. Mina is my little peanut. She is sweetness and spunk wrapped in a small package. She is light and petite in stature, but fierce in personality. She is my biggest snuggler and gives the best hugs. She also has a fierce temper when it goes that makes the boys in my house cower. She is a little firecracker, but the next minute will crawl in your lap to snuggle and make you forget all about it.

So you see, each one of my kids is so different. I am always entertained and I cannot wait to see what they are going to grow up into. One thing is for sure, it will not be a boring road.
