What Do I Want? The Alpha / Beta Complex

Earlier this week, I talked about the "spirit" that seems to switch in my girls, leaving one angsty and cranky and the other happy and content. But never at the same time.

One personality trait that remains consistent throughout these shifts is the Alpha Twin / Beta Twin complex. As they've gotten older, the girls have settled into distinct roles, having to do with their respective needs for company vs. solitude.

Natalina is more independent in that she prefers to do things alone sometimes, whereas Dulce won't make a decision or take a step without Natalina's approval. Not even tiny ones.
