Likes and Dislikes

As I reflect on the fact that I wanted my kids to someday come back to this blog and read about their childhood, see pictures and learn things about themselves that I will likely forget with my advancing age I thought I’d put a post out here about their likes and dislikes right now in their lives (at age 4).

So, let’s start with Birk.

Birk LOVES the Cyclones. He loves anything to do with a ball, especially baseball. He will be starting Blast Ball in a week and he is ExCYted to say the least! He love wrestling with his dad on the living room floor. Being the pool is now become one of his favorite past times. He loves Cars, Toy Story, and Wreck it Ralph. Birk’s favorite foods are; cheeseburgers, pizza, mac-n-cheese, apples, candy and flavored water.

Now Addy.

Addy LOVES pink. Anything pink is her favorite. It goes so far that she loves pink meat (?). Addy loves to play school, house, with babies. She is bubbly and loves to use her imagination, however she can keep up with the boys. She loves to run, play hide n seek, tag and play on the play set in the backyard. Addy loves to snuggle and watch a movie. She loves to read books and could listen to someone read to her for hours. She loves singing, and playing her keyboard… until she notices anyone is watching her. She loves sunglasses and owns about 100 pairs. She will even own that one and tell anyone how many pairs she has.

On the opposite side…

Birk does not like; BUTTONS. Don’t ask that kid to wear buttons. He has some strange aversion to them. He does not like sweatshirts that have a ½ zipper. A full zipper is acceptable, but that ½ zip is out of the question. He dislikes when he can’t wear shorts. He doesn’t typically want help getting dressed, or using the restroom (which to Mom and Dad is nice and a bit alarming….in case it isn’t done properly). Birk doesn’t like dry meat. Ok, so let me explain as you may be thinking I’m crazy. Birk doesn’t care for chicken breasts that take a lot of chewing or pork. He is very particular about that. He will keep that meat in his mouth until it has liquefied and then choke it down. So I just choose not to force him to eat that. Now if chicken comes in the form of nuggets …. Whole new ballgame! Birk doesn’t like saying goodbye, he doesn’t like endings and he completely falls apart when he has to stop running after church is over.

Addy dislikes anything that is not pink. She is a bit more of a picky eater, but not bad. She doesn’t care for mac-n-cheese and won’t feed herself pasta noodles. She will eat them if I feed them to her, but the work to poke your folk into the noodle and put it into her mouth is just over the top. Addy doesn’t care to pick out her own clothes (Birk is my clothes kid…Adds could care less). She doesn’t even really care to dress herself (although she will). Addy doesn’t like to be told no, TO ANYTHING.

While the twins have very strong likes and very strong dislikes it makes me beyond proud of the people they are turning out to be. They have individual personalities that are unique to each other and it just makes my heart happy.
