30 Days of Me: Day Three

Today I'm supposed to show you three pictures of my animals. However, I'm currently living in a 2 bedroom house with 6 other humans, so I don't have any animals. And to be honest I don't really like animals. I do however have four very amazing children who are very animalistic in character so I will describe them each as if they were animals.

First, I have my monkey, CJ. Cyle Jr is 6 years old, the oldest of the bunch. He is super wild and

loves to entertain. He loves being the center of attention, and he is incredibly smart. He randomly asks me if I'm checking my credit score, but in the next sentence will tell me how cool I am. When he grows up he wants to be a doctor, a teacher, and a rockstar so he can live in a city (because apparently that's who lives in the city). I called him a monkey because he's so energetic

and silly. He jumps off of couches and is a ball of energy. I can't get him to sit down. He loves to meet people, and be outside, and do all things extroverted. I honestly don't know where he gets that from. He might be a monkey and a puppy. Yeah, probably a puppy, because he's a lot cuter than a monkey.

Then I have a puuurfectly pretty kitty named Elisabeth. She is super quiet-- unless she's not getting her way. Then you might get a good scratch out of her. While she's wildly independent, she also manages to be the most warm and clingy of the bunch. She doesn't like people very much, and sometimes, I'm not really sure she likes me (lol, jk. My kids all adore me). But this chocolate drop was a prayer that was answered from my childhood because I thought I wouldn't be able to have a chocolate baby. And now that I have one I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Granted I love the skin I'm in and I'm happy to have such colorful children, but I feel privileged to raise a chocolate girl that will value her skin in a way many like her could not. She's quiet, careful, curious, opinionated, and imaginative. She thinks of the most creative ways to get what she wants, and the thing I love most is that she's confident. She seems to have no fear of rejection or obstacle. I admire her so much.

So Chloe is an over-sized chipmunk. She was born pretty big for a twin, just under 7 lbs. And still, she has no problem making space for herself. She is lively and quick. She's animated and can throw a good fit. More than anything, like her monkey/puppy brother, she is super silly, taking every opportunity to laugh and make jokes. She's not high maintenance, but she is a natural leader. She takes every opportunity to give orders and she will argue you down about anything. Chloe sleeps the longest, plays the hardest, and is not afraid to make her own way. She also happens to be the child that looks most like me.

Now my last child is Ezana, and he's a panther, if you could have one as a pet. He's very fierce and serious, but at the same time there's this beautiful charm in his eyes. When he smiles, though not often, my heart melts, but when he cries, he is loud. He is a force to be reckoned with. He is a fighter, a warrior. He loves to play rough, but he loves to cuddle even more. Despite his small frame, he has a lot going on, and he's not afraid to show it.

So there you have it! My four pets. Except they're better than pets, and unlike pets they will be around to take care of me when I'm 60 years old.
