My Girls!

Oh my girls, how I love my two girls, but quiet frankly they are going to send me to the loony bin! We are in the final countdown of summer break, and really they have been pretty good all summer as far as playing together and getting along and not driving their mother insane. That has all ended. They do not wish to get along they do not want to play with one another, and I have never seen two kids who were more competitive with one another. Sibling rivalry to the max these two.

Anyway this morning they got up insanely early, so I sent them to the living room to watch t.v., so I catch about 30 more minutes of sleep. Big mistake!! From my groggy state I hear screaming and yelling, then rustling, then Meg (who is the younger by the way) I am going to punch you in the eye! Then I hear crying! Evidently Meg follows through on a threat. UGH! The eye was okay, and after another 15 minute lecture for the 400th time about how we never hit anyone in our family ever for any reason, I am officially ready for them to go back to school. Yes, I will miss them terribly, but I will remain sane. They get along much better when they aren't spending as much time together. That leaves just me and the boy here, and we are tackling potty training this year, oh Lord help me, can't I send him to school for that?

I got the giggles from this post! The thought of hearing "I'm going to punch you in the eye" first thing in the morning cracks me up for some reason even though it must be terrifying for the mama! I will make a horrible parent if I continue to laugh when my own children fight someday!
