Wrongside Explained

Yesterday I referred to David as "wrongside" this was a first for the blog, in life it happens everyday. As the video below shows, David spends a lot of time complaining with his lower lip rolled over.

You can tell what type of day you are going to have with David moments after he wakes up. Some days, he gets up on the wrong side of the bed. He still sleeps in a crib, I was thinking about it and thought, maybe, if I turn the crib around it may change his disposition. I doubt it.

David is a walking, talking example in my life of the age old question "Nature vs. Nurture". Having children demonstrates that individuals are born with their own unique personalities. Nature plays a very large role in who we are and how we process/perceive the world. We do not learn whether the glass is half full or half empty, the answer to that question is inborn.

Nurture plays a very large role in outlining/dictating the path an individuals personality will follow. It does not determine the individuals personality. The optimist or the pessimist is not formed but born. I have three shining examples proving it to me everyday.

You are soooo right. I can't get over the fact that my daughter is completely different from my son. He is so easy going, while she is, well, high maintenance. Or is that just a girl thing?

My boys are as different as night and day. Biggest is "The Strong Willed Child", Littlest is completely easy going. Biggest trys my patience and yells his way through the day, Littlest is always singing (though sometimes rather loudly just to annoy his brother who then yells to complain about it!) Two boys, very different dispositions, I couldn't teach it if I wanted to. I just get to train it.
