My Kids & their Baby Blues

The most unbelievable blue eyes you’ve ever seen…

I think doing these writing workshops have to be my favorite thing to do!  So setting aside all of the tasks that are building up for the #31DBBB I’m here writing from one of Mama Kat’s prompts.

When I think of the prompt that I chose I think how many people are going to write about their kids, that one guy, their husband, or something else. For me the first thing that came to my mind was my kids. Honestly, I don’t spend much time gazing at people’s eyes! That’d be pretty damn creepy!

My children are amazing creatures. They can be funny, loving, intense, annoying, and challenging all at the same time. There are times I wonder if I’m totally screwing them up or if they’ll be well adjusted adults. Guess time will tell!

There is one thing that my children all have in common, and that’s the amazing large, blue eyes. And I love it. Each of them has a slightly different shade than the others too and in this respect a bit different.

My oldest, Caitlin, has always had these BIG blue eyes. They’re a bright blue and really stand out in contrast to her dark hair and skin.

Natalie is my little blue eyed blond baby. She’s the only one who has blond hair, although the jury is still out on what color Andrew’s will be. Her’s are a light, crisp blue.

Now, Lauren looks similar to her older sister Caitlin in that they have the same skin coloring and hair color. But her eyes are a blue-gray color that seem to change depending on the weather.

My youngest is Andrew and the baby of the family (really he is… he’s only 6 months old). By now his eyes would have changed colors if they were going to and I’m happy to say that they stayed blue! He has such a serious look for someone so small.

Of course they got those amazing blue eyes from me!
