I love having a large family and love that I have kids who are all close in age and love to play with each other.
What I could do without is the inevitable fights and arguments that start between them. Now that they’re getting older and their personalities and preferences are coming out — the sibling fights are becoming more evident with each passing day.
I am lucky, in a way, because I think that my kids generally do a great job of getting along. I’ve never had issues that result in physical altercations between them and they generally like to hang out with each other. It makes my life easier.
However, when you live in such close proximity with people and you’re learning all about your world, there will be disagreements and overreactions and it can get loud. My kids always seem to argue about the same things though. To me? They’re silly! But it’s all a big deal to them!
