The Siblings Project | July 2017


If I had to pick one word to sum up Indie and Parker's relationship this month, it would probably be troublesome. And for a few reasons too!

There's no denying that they have an oh so special bond, something that only comes from being so close together in age. But my goodness do they wind each other up. Indie will ask Parker is he wants something (which of course he does!), and then snatch it away and tell him no. Parker is equally as bad, snatching Indie's toys just to get a reaction. That reaction always being tears.

It's actually getting to the point where it's becoming exhausting. Being the middle man really isn't that fun.. especially when neither owns up to being in the wrong! And being so exhausted from this pregnancy, I've definitely struggled to keep the peace this month.

On the flip side though, they've also been troublesome in a completely different way. They are thick as thieves and true partners in crime! Egging each other on. Using each other to get what they want. I honestly think they spend their evenings before falling asleep plotting what they can get up to next. Monkeys.

It's making me both worried and excited to bring a third into the mix. Will they welcome them into the fold and become the Three Musketeers? Or will their close bond leave baby on the outside? Any mamas of three, I'd LOVE to know your experiences. I feel I need all the help I can get before these two become a three in January!

  1. Troublesome but very very cute ;) They sound so lovely and close :) xx

  2. My experience leans definitely towards the three muskateers! I found going from 2 to 3 much easier than 1 to 2 and now that all three of them are big enough to run around and really play together they're a proper litle trio! Your two are just adorable together and I'm sure all will go well with a third!

  3. They sound just like Toby and Gabe although I think because Toby is a bit older the balance of power is definitely in his favour! I don't know how you are coping with this stage while being pregnant too - it's exhausting enough as it is! #SiblingsProject
