She’s quick, I’ll give her that

The temperature was a FRIGID 73 degrees.

The fighting began the moment we got in the van.

Rachael wraps up in a blanket sitting in the back of the van.

Peyton counters by grasping the edge of the blanket and whipping it away from her.

Peyton snaps: It’s MINE!

Rachael whines : Mommmm, Peyton just grabbed that blanket that belongs to her that I was using.

Me: Rachael, what was the KEY phrase in that sentence?


Rachael: I was using?

This is my life, people.

    No, no, no, get this…let’s say kid #1 is sitting on the couch watching tv, but decides to go to the bathroom. When kid # 1 gets up to do that, kid #2 AND kid #3 both scramble to get to that spot as fast as possible. Then, of course, kid # 1 comes back and demands that spot back, and a fight ensues.

    It’s not like we don’t have enough couch space for everyone to sit.

    She is quick, but my hunch is she come’s by it naturally… Mom.

    Toddler credo:
    If it’s mine, it’s mine.
    If I had it, it’s mine.
    If you have it and I want it, it’s mine.
    If it looks like mine, it’s mine…

    Some kids just don’t get the rules. LOL.
    Kudos to Rachel for her attempt at skirting it. Good on ya!

    Ahh, sibling rivalry. It’s a beautiful thing, isn’t it? Unfortunately, it happens with boys too.
