Both of my kids are very strong-willed, just like I was. They give us a run for our money.

Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!

Liam is an intense kid. He is quietly stubborn as a mule. He doesn't display it overtly, he is passive aggressive. But don't let that fool you If its not on his agenda...it just isn't happening.

Kieran used to be more go-with-the-flow. But as he is growing up more, he is displaying some stubbornness. I don't think he will be as stubborn as Liam. But I do think it will be more overt and obvious. But he is not really "mellow."

Eliana is very passionate, stubborn, and strong-willed. (Fortunately I can be pretty stubborn too, but even with that she can be overwhelming)
Eli is very mellow, and definitely more patient.

M was a big kicker in the womb, was fighting and screaming loud enough for the whole county to hear her the second she was born, and since then has been more of the same "mellow" is not a word I would use to describe her, though she is not high strung either and is pretty good tempered. She is just extremely energetic, strong, loud, knows what she wants and is not afraid to let you know exactly what she is feeling!!! I think she will be a passionate and opinionated adult. She is definitely strong willed and can be really stubborn but she is very overt about it, not passive aggressive at all, and is often willing to negotiate as long as she feels heard. Really as long as she gets in some good exercise and stimulation she is easy going and it's just when she is stir crazy that she becomes a big cranky mess.

Gabriella is extremely stubborn.(I wonder where she got that) If she doesn't want to do something she doesn't plain and simple. She is also a very independent little girl and pretty much always has been.

Both kids are stubborn. Ash knows what she wants and when...and promptly lets me know about this. If I don't fulfill her needs accordingly, she throws a little tantrum. Drives me bonkers.
Matthew is the same way, but slightly more laid back..as in..easily distracted.
Both DF and I are suuuuuper stubborn, so it's no surprise I guess.
