Minte was not the only one that was growing up too quickly before I knew I had blinked and it was time for the triplet’s birthday. My little girls were growing up so quickly before my eyes, it seemed like it was only yesterday when the doctor had told me that I was having three girls. They have grown so much since the day that we brought them home.
Crème the eldest was always in the lead when learning or discovering things, Jito swears that she must be a genius. She was the first to blow out her candle and embark on to being a child.
Anglaise was our easy going and able to take anything in stride toddler. Friendly and always making new friends with any visitors we had or even at the park. Her eyes would light up though at just about anything, whether it was large or small, sparkly or dull, she was impressed.
Little Sabayon had just stared down at her candles, their constant uneven flickering of the flames began to unnerve her and she began to breath in and out quickly. After a moment or so of staring down the candles she let out a terrible cry and refused to be anywhere near the cake. In fact she would not be calmed if that cake was in pain sight, so into the fridge her cake went.
The girls were so excited to be starting school. For years they had curiously watched their brothers dash off for the school bus. Now it was their turn to go to school. After a bit of supply shopping and a few new outfits they were ready as can be. After excited trying on outfits and decided on the perfect ones I couldn’t help but wonder if it was like this now how would they be as teenagers embarking on their first year of high school? The night before I don’t think any of them got any sleep, giggling back and forth and talking in hushed tones. I had to remind them a few times that they had an early day tomorrow and that their father had an even earlier one.
