My kids are alike in many ways. But they are definitely more different than they are alike, I think. Cason has never met a stranger. Kendall is very selective with whom she'll talk. Cason loves school...loves learning...loves being successful at school. Kendall likes art projects. Cason likes things done a certain way. Kendall is much more easy going and easy to please. Kendall likes to pick up her toys. Cason...doesn't.
One of their biggest differences is how they deal with change. Or rather, how Cason hates change and Kendall doesn't really seem to mind it. Cason doesn't like new experiences and Kendall will try anything. Case in point tonight at dinner: Colin and I were discussing an article that listed several of the most affordable places to live in the United States. Lots of the top places were in Texas so I said (being the awesome Texan that I am), "Let's move to one of those places on the list. Hey kids! Who wants to move to Texas?!" Kendall started jumping up and down screaming, "Yay!" Cason immediately burst into tears. Like big time tears. We had to calm him down and assure him that we were NOT moving to Texas, that we were in Oklahoma for life, whether I want to be here or not. After we got him calmed down, Kendall looked around, very disappointed and said, "So are we staying in this house forever then or what?"
Hopefully not, baby girl. Hopefully not.
