Raisin' Ladies

Posted by

It's hard raising girls. We have 4 girls, no boys. A lot of our friends have only girls as well. I can tell you we are not quite there yet with equality and I know this is just the beginning but I have 4 girls who love sports and they are all lucky enough to be extremely good at whatever sport they do. This year I am blessed to have 3 of my girls on the varsity high school soccer team. It is so nice to see the twins playing on the field with their older sister. There is only one thing that could top it and that's if all 4 girls played together. My fault I spaced the first 2 out too far.

Last year at the end of the soccer season when the girls were winning Districts and Leagues the girls always got the first game and the boys had the night game. I always had to ask to leave work early but the boys parents never had to worry about that. This season I open the local paper to the sports section and there are photos of football (boys obviously) soccer, only the boys team and golf, again-boys. There is a small write up on girls soccer and other sports. On the adjacent page is a huge write up on nascar, didn't know that was local. I have 3 daughters on the same team, on the field at the same time and they are all pretty decent players but there's no coverage, no photos, no mention, oh that's right they're girls. If I had boys it would be different. 

Sadly I will have to explain to my girls that boys will always get paid more, they will get better scholarships, they will get prime playing times and they will have more photos and write ups in the paper. Nah, I'm not going to have that conversation.....I will let them have faith that they can make a change and hope that things will change.

Love. Hate. Love. This is what my every other minute of the day feels like with 13 year old twin girls. If they aren’t fighting over clothing (which some are exactly the same like soccer uniforms) they are arguing over [...]

To Dress Alike or Not. A Twin Question By twin mom guest blogger Kim Cartwright

A question can come up when preparing for twins and again once they are born. Do you dress them alike, or not? You can hear some strong opinions on this one. I heard from people to absolutely never dress twins alike. You will ruin their quest for individuality. I’ve also heard of course you [...]

This Is Us

I had the pleasure of actually sitting down to fold laundry one night and it happened to be the night of the first episode of This is us. I don’t typically watch TV especially 1 hour shows I just can’t commit to that much time. Occasionally I do enjoy a 1/2 hour comedy here and [...]

Can We Talk?

I guess I am automatically under the assumption that if you have twins you are happy to meet another mothers who have twins or perhaps that’s just me? But it can’t be. I love talking about my twins, I actually love talking about all my kids because I am proud of them in one [...]

You Learn Something New Everyday.

When you have children there are those times, especially with twins, when they seem to either constantly bicker or they constantly giggle. I know I’ve mentioned in a past blog that I never thought I would get irritated at hearing my kids giggle but sometimes I do have to ask them to stop. Mothers of multiples you [...]
