Because motherhood will never be a perfect science

Round One…

on December 6, 2013

One of the teachers at Baby girl’s daycare laughed at me today when I complained about the fighting that went on this morning between my 2 lovely tyrants. She laughed even harder when I explained that I was an only child.

I obviously don’t get the whole sibling rivalry thing. I do have half-sisters but we didn’t grow up together so all of this heated competition; struggle for attention and determination to be better than the other is all foreign to me.

So when I see Diva girl and Baby girl fighting over a pencil when there are 10 other pencils in the pencil case or when they are screaming at each other over who should sit on the left side of the couch when there is also the middle and the right side of the couch not to mention the loveseat…I am completely baffled.

I’m learning to let them work things out, but sometimes I just want to send them both to their rooms so I can have a few moments of peace.

The funny thing is, they fight like crazy but if I try to separate them for too long then I end up being the bad guy because they want to be with each other.


I guess being six and three means they’re still too young to move out?
