"I am Blue"

As most of you know by now when I was pregnant with the girls I had given them colors, so I would know who ate what, whose Binky was whos', Which Girl was which.. so on and so forth! Aspen is White, Payton is Pink and Trinity, Purple... Well around Halloween T dressed up as Cinderella. Thus began a fight! All of the sudden she wanted to be blue... UM NO~~~ I have 3 boys who always wore blue, Noooooo not even girly blue! FYI Purple is my favorite color.
Anyhow we went to get new big girl cups (sippy cups that look like a thermos, they only drink water and ice in them so that is why they use them, that and my carpet is light tan) Well the store only had Purple, Pink and Girly Blue (almost like a teal) so when I brought them home, I thought ok Aspen will use girly blue. Nope! Trinity spotted it right on the dot and said "Oh Thank You Mama you got my blue" urgggggg no i didn't! So Aspen said she liked the purple, it's pretty.
Then we went to get new earrings I always get them the same earrings but different colors, They had White, Pink and Purple, BUT the purple was slightly different then the other 2. But guess what they did have to match.... Blue! (ok, really who hates me) Trinity spotted that sucker right off the bat!
"Mama, look they have my blue!"
"T, your color is Purple"
"No, Mama it's not"
"Yes, T it is!"
"Mama, I am being Blue, it is my new color, purple is broken"
(she said this in a very fact of the matter, yet kindly voice)
"Trinity, why do you like Blue?"
"Cuz, Mama it is Cinderella's color... and she is my princess"
how in the world can I argue that.....
"Fine, if I let you get blue, can you do purple still when there is no blue?"
"(big sighhhh) I guess, but they do have blue, and it matches the girls!"
Later when they bought new babies (yes, because that is what they needed was another baby) you see what color she picked! I think I have lost this war.... for now!

OH that is so funny!! I was getting confused just reading the post and trying to remember who liked what??? confusing for you! but I am sure you are used to it!! It's cute!! lol :)

Jody, that is such a cute story... and such great idea to give them all their own color to tell them (and their stuff) apart. Looks like Miss T just got her independence!!! haha I bet the colors even carry on into their adulthood!! That is so awesome - I want a color!!! =) You know, I don't even have to tell you that my favorite color is ALSO purple!!! Love you girl!!

I have a twin and her color was pink and mine was purple--even when we outgrew favorite colors she is still drawn to traditional girl colors and I tend to like blues, greens, and browns:)

I am so sorry Jody-I couldn't help but start laughing out loud at this! When I did the girls started saying-what mommy! This is too funny! Something that you can write down and remind her of later when she is older! Kids are so cute!

I think I've already told you this, but Ella has decided she likes PURPLE now. She still ikes blue, but she will often pick purple OVER blue (even asking for a purple baloon the other day at Johnny Rockets!). So, your girl switched to blue and mine to purple... Katie is still ALL PINK ALL THE TIME... at least there is some consistency in our lives!

I can totally relate to this...I've assigned colors to my daughters since birth. Ours started off as yellow, purple and pink. Somewhere along the way Emily decided that she liked blue better than yellow so now we are blue, purple and pink (most of the time anyway).
Thanks for leaving a comment on our blog today. To answer your questions: my girls are not identical and yes our triplets are pretty close in age - ours are June 2004.
You have a beautiful family! I can't imagine having 3 older kids in addition to triplets, and my hat is off to you!! Just out of curiosity...how did you come across our blog?
