My Four Beautiful Girls


Hardly a day goes past without me thinking how lucky I am to have four little girls. I never dreamed that I would have even one of them. Everyone I knew seemed to be having boys and I only had brothers. It just seemed to me that I would have boys too. That would have been just fine too.

But now that I actually have four girls I think I am sooo lucky. I had no idea how lucky girls with sisters were. Our girls mostly love each other dearly, even though they sometimes fight and say grotty things to each other. They are very good at giving each other encouraging words,a hug, or a special treat, saved especially for their sisters, from an outing.


They all have sweet things that they do for us. Just the other day No. 3 picked five daisies on the way home and later that day she placed one on each of our beds as a little present. How sweet is that? I think Daddy and I might just have shed a little tear at that gift.

And this morning No. 1 popped a chocolate gift, from a party she attended yesterday, under the pillow of each sister. Well No. 4 received a balloon, which was a more appropriate present for her at that hour. They were gratefully received.
Last week No. 2 made the beds of her sisters as a surprise for them. What a lovely thought and quite a lot of work for her too. She received a special certificate for that gift of kindness.
And what has No. 4 been up to? Well she is just the most fantastic little poppet out! She is huggy, kissy, and never short of a few loving words. Oh I could just eat her up she is so lovely. She smells good too, soft and warm. Mmmm.

And now on to a different note. I decided a while ago, when my 'countries visited' list arrived at 50, I would have my first blog giveaway. It will be relevant to the name of the list and I will be busy preparing a parcel of goodies for the winner this week. Stay tuned for more details later on in the week!

Yes, I think you're lucky because you have four healthy children...
As I have a son too , I can tell you that boys - maybe in a different way- but are just as sweet, caring and loving as girls can be .

What little wonders! I have been glad to have boys, but it's always good to know that some people out there are having gorgeous girls too, otherwise the world population is going to drop quite dramatically! (Like you, all our friends and family seemed to be having boys.)

Thanks for your nice email and comment on my blog - I felt bad about deserting people without explaining our holiday, but thought it was a bit risky to announce that our house would be abandoned for a week!

The giveaway sounds exciting - I'm having a small one for the rentree, but not too much...

We have 2 sweet girls of our own, now in their 20's and still best friends.
Sounds like a wonderful giveaway idea! I'll be looking forward to it.

Ah, what a lovely post!
Your daughters sound so kind and generous and of course,they have ready made friends. I'm the youngest of 4 children, 3 girls and a boy - and it is so lovely to have both brothers and sisters - we are all still good friends 40+ years later!
Families are the best....
Happy days

Hi Sarah, what a lovely post! I'm a only daughter and I've enjoyed very much reading what I've missed!
P.S.I had a Christmas giveaway one week ago..why did you not enter?

RebeccaMom said...

Your girls sound like they are so sweet with each other and everyone! How wonderful :)

Your sooooo lucky to have four gorgeous girls. What lovely hairstyles too!

Oh I think I nearly had tears in my eyes reading about how lovely your girls are to each other. My daughter actually writes me little notes and leaves them somewhere special, and picks flowers too. She always tells me she would have loved a sister instead of an older brother but there is nothing to change that now. I am sure your girls will grow up very close to each other and support one another if they have such a good relationship now. I only have 1 sister and no brothers but I always wanted an older brother, and never knew until I was grown up a bit that if you were already the oldest there was no way you could have an older sibling. I loved having a sister and yes we did fight too but are very close now. Enjoy all your beautiful girls!

Good morning Sarah!

oh that was so lovely to read :)
As you know I have 4 boys, and I would be lying if I said nope never wanted a girl!! Because I did and still have pinkfree pangs lol!! But the boys each bring there own little bit of special to our lives (if I look past the teenage attitude, gaming addiction, tantrums, and general oikness!!match each attribute to a son lol!!!)
I actually find it fascinating how some families end up with a whole bunch of 1 sex children, I know its scientific at the end of the day ;) but fascinating none the less!
