Seven and five, boy and girl, they are the joy of my heart, the apple of my eye, the pain in my……(ahem).
They are just sweeties 99% of the time.
Our house is a love fest – like yours no doubt, so I’m sure you can relate. It’s peaceful and quiet, it’s sharing and caring. During these times, the kids get along famously. They are considerate to each other and work together to decide what to play with or what movie to watch. They are giggly, and happy and cute and well, during these times, Mommy is less likely to hide in her closet with a good book and a beverage.
But that other 1%, is when they
drive me crazy confuse me.
Because something happens. It goes from love story to fight club. Bickering, bugging, poking, yelling, and on and on. You know those days you wish your kids came with a mute button? Well, evidently those days increase as they get older. Another thing I did not read in any baby book.
Thankfully they have their own rooms, to which I can send them when the ridiculous bickering makes Mommy’s ears bleed. Of course, in my case, my little angels have put signs on their doors, telling each other to KEEP OUT, so that makes me crazy proud. After all, the five year old spelled KEEP OUT correctly, and I’m all about the spelling.
Celebrate the little things people, because sometimes that’s all we got!
My mom insists that all kids have moments where they really don’t like each other, but I can’t remember those days when I was young. I remember the five of us getting along smashingly while we played thrilling games of Pong.
Can you relate? Any little people bickering going on at your house?
