Naomi sure knows how to work a guy. Only 9 years old and she just has to flutter those baby blues. "Daddy, I can't reach!" "Daddy, can you carry me to bed?" "Cary, can you carry my xylophone?" She didn't want to learn flute when she joined band, mind you, it had to be xylophone. Those things are heavy! But no worries, she's got her twin brother carrying it for her. Eventually it will be a boyfriend, no doubt. Dearra's a lot more shy and also independent, but Naomi will probably get by her whole life without having to do a thing that she doesn't want to. She's a natural. Know anybody like that?

I was like that and my brother was always furious at my parents for letting me behave like this though. Then gradually I came to understand that when we do things by ourselves we can get better satisfaction also. My boyfriend now is getting use to that now.

Yesterday both twins cried when their dad wanted to take them to his mom's. The boy had to go anyway, but Naomi got out of it. Sigh...

Some Are Born That Way .. - Some Have it Their Way ..
Naomi And Dearra, Who Are they Your Daughters I Suppose .. Some Kids Are Bossy .. But Most Of them Are Unsuccessful .. Some Are Lucky If they Do Have Some Caring Brother Sister Or Parents .. I Had A Cousin Who Was Like This But Mostly She Was Left to Fend For Herself .. A Well Thought Of Discussion ..

Oh come on! Who are we trying to kid here? You girls start manipulation at birth and hone it into a fine art for the rest of your life! And we men LOVE IT!! It takes years of training to get it just right and as with everything in life, some are better at it than others and, lets be brutally honest here, some girls just have better attributes than others. Big blue eyes are two of them but others spring to mind. haha

hi dawnald I was just thinking of a lady who we used to live next door to a long time back. she was a single mom with two little kids,one the younger was a boy, the other older one a girl. the older of the two she was happy go lucky and she got c's and for her that was okay.she was passing in school and it did not bother her or her mother. she was 8, the boy who had a bad leg was 6, and was home schooled.that boy was an absolute genius. he could read fourth and fifth grade books,he knew his math way above grade level, and he tried to help his older sis but she was la de dah, I will get it done. She made C's and he made double A;s. I imagine his IQ was off the scale. Yet they were brother and sister.wow.

Actually that's kind of like my twins. Naomi is getting tested for Gate (it's a gifted program) and Cary's a year behind her and struggling (Autism)... PS you can call me Dawn lol

Although I’ve witnessed my own daughter’s ‘look’ which melts her father’s heart I have to say that her cousin, my sister’s seven year old child is a master of manipulation. She ‘works’ her father, grandfather and uncle with enviable skill and...You guessed it, almost always gets exactly what she wants when she wants it which is fine but it has turned her into a rather spoiled self obsessed little girl who may find life a tad difficult as she gets older and discovers that not everybody is going to fall for her charm!

My daughter just turned 7 and she has daddy wrapped around her pinky finger since birth. It's so cute. I am slightly better at not getting totally used and abused by her, but even I can't stand to tell her no. She has this charisma. She could win any argument with Obama, Bush or Clinton. ha ha. She can make you do almost anything. I swear one day she'll be queen of the universe. lol. If you ever hear of an important leader named Amelia...that's my girl. :-P

She and Naomi can negotiate over who's queen and who's princess. :-)

That makes me wish I'd had a daughter. I have two little granddaughters staying here this week, and I'm sure they could twist anyone round their little fingers - especially the five year old with great big blue eyes and flaming red hair.

I will need one for Dearra's first. Though she's mouthy and opinonated and she'll probably scare most of the guys off!

Hmmmmmmm, maybe her mom, teasing dawn. I have known a few helpless women but there was never any in my family, all the women worked hard . Guess the helpless ones were smarter they i was. I was always too independant for my own good.

Nope, I am no good at that. If I'm working somebody, it's in such a way that they know I know. Or something like that.

We had one like that and one of her daughters is like that also. Must be in the Genes, her fathers. Both these women grew up to be very independent, it's like they got it out of their systems early.

Well this may sound a bit sickly but people ususally ask if they can carry that awfully heavy looking cup for me and believe me I don't flutter or flirt.
