Sorry my child doesn’t want to play with yours!

If you’re a regular reader of my blog then you’ll already know just how different our twin girls are. M is really girly. She loves dressing up as princesses, playing with dolls, wearing dresses and generally anything pink and cuddly.

More often than not we hear one of our daughters names being said more than the others.
