My boys definitely have similarities in their looks. Both of them are little blue-eyed blondies. Some people actually ask us if they are twins!
They may look alike, but they certainly have different temperaments! Jonah has always been cautious, even apprehensive sometimes. He does his best not to ever get hurt. He knows the rules and he follows them as best he can. He is a really good boy and smart as a tack.
Eli on the other hand is our little danger boy. He is adventuresome and not afraid of ANYTHING! He will do something slightly dangerous, get hurt, cry for two seconds... and then go do it again! He is also a bit more stubborn than Jonah and is constantly testing his boundaries.
So I guess I shouldn't be surprised at how different their reactions to getting their hair cut. Honey Daddy cuts the boys hair. He has been doing it since they were born. You would think by now Jonah would not react like this every. single. time.
In his defense, by the end of the haircut he had calmed down and was smiling. I know a lot of kids don't like getting their hair cut. You would think that since Eli is younger, he would be afraid of getting his hair cut too.
It's no wonder you cannot treat all your children exactly the same! We definitely have to discipline Eli differently than Jonah, and different incentives work for each of them.
Regardless of their differences (and maybe even because of them), I love these little munchkins! They teach me so much every day... and they are adorable, don'tcha think?
