I guess the photo above already justified what I meant by “Complete Opposite“. Deye is 9 years old. Ishi is 5 years old. Both girls but with different personalities. Deye is the shy, prim and proper type. While Ishi is the complete opposite of her sister. As per the study, siblings tend to resemble each other in looks and intelligence but are quite different in personality.

Academically, both excels. However, you will see eagerness with Ishi. She’s the type of a young learner who knows her responsibilities before anything else. As soon as she gets home from school, she would check on her notes first without the need to remind her. While Deye takes her own sweet time relaxing before she finally sit down and do her homeworks.

Fashion wise, most of the time, Ishi doesn’t mind what color or style of  a shoe and dress you’d get her for as long as it fits her, she’d go for it while Deye is a typical girl who would take time in choosing the style, fitting and color especially. I think she got that from me! Teehee!

I can also sense that Ishi will grow up domesticated. She shows interest when I’m in the kitchen while Deye, again, is a complete copy of me haha! I grew up not knowing any household chores and only learned when I had no choice haha!

However, I am at my happiest because both grew up to be sweet and doting especially with each other. Of course, sibling fights are normal but at least they are both open to making-up after each fight.

Of all the things I’ve said, allow me to clear things up, I am not comparing. The fact that they are a complete opposite challenges me more as they grow older. This is why I always defend myself to my husband when I feel the need of being strict. Technically, I am raising them alone as my husband works miles away from us and I don’t want to end up being blamed for what they might become, if not properly guided and disciplined.
