Don’t get me wrong-my kids love each other. They can go long stretches being sweet and playing together. Until it stops. I started keeping track of why they were whining and yelling over this long weekend. Rather than getting irritated, I am choosing to find the humor.
Happy Meal toys-They agreed while we were in McDonald’s on who got which toy. I should have known it was too easy. We got in the car and within minutes they were fighting about whether they “traded” or “borrowed” during an exchange.
Taking the dog out-Who gets to take him out? Because, you know, they can’t go together or anything.
Why did you take my seat belt off? Yes, there was punishment for this one because it is dangerous. Not sure we ever found out why….
You stole my quarter-“No, I found it.” Yeah, in the backseat that only you two sit in. Just give her back her quarter.
Whether their stuffed animals are friends with them-I can’t make this stuff up, but my girls can.
Don’t call me queen-Allllright. I guess I can see that, as Disney never makes queens look good?
What they can or can’t say to each other’s stuffed animals-Yes, they do take stuffed animal play seriously.
What an unpolished emerald looks like-they both apparently know and have completely different ideas. One was talking from real life science class. The other was referring to what they look like in Minecraft. Yep, you read that right.
I am sure that this bickering is preparing them for a lifetime of being best friends. I don’t want to wait until then to laugh about it, so I am starting now!
Hope this brightened your day!
