Is there any family out there immune from 5-year-old and 7-year-old sibling rivalry? How can two kids absolutely love being together one minute and with the flip of a switch, want to tear each others teeth out? Our family is not immune. That would just be boring. How could I play referee if my children snuggled each other and peacefully played Go Fish all day? Like I said, BORING!
We’re still on Christmas break here. Until January 17th, we are on Christmas break. Who ever came up with the idea of year-round school was sniffing suede spray when it was his turn to vote. Did they not think of the poor mothers out there, who would not be sending their kids to school in January, while the rest of the world got after it? No, we take January off and go to school in July. Huh?
It’s okay, I get to polish my refereeing skills. And honestly, I really do love having them home. I get sad every time I have to send them back. And I wish I had it in me to home-school. Except for, of course, when a moment like this arises…
