The Land of Bickering

Why won't they stop when I tell them to stop?

How many times do you have to poke your brother before you end up in a brawl?

How many times do you have to repeat each word your sister says in a falsetto before she clobbers you?

How many times does your mother have to yell at you all to stop it before you end up in separate rooms for time outs?

Hold on, kids home sick and they are just about to find out the answer to the last question....

I'll be back later....

Be well,

With you in prayer.

Little Brear is on vacation this week, but miserably sick today and just feeling a bit better enough to be crabby.

hoping in the land of bickering, peace comes quick (or at least back to health and back to school) Too sick for school, but not sick enough to bicker. Love it; my sympathies to you, Dawn

He's touching me!!! OMG I remember those days. My son threw a dart and it landed in his sisters face...that was a bad day. Scared me to death and he had trouble sitting for a few days to say the least. Of course, this was 35 years ago and you could smack your kids bottom without the state knocking on your front door.  He never, ever hurt his sister again.   Sandi

I am sorry to say that it doesn't get any better.  Mine (20 and 18) still bicker.  Plus I get from them......."Oh of course, you buy him this....... you do that for her!"  It drives me crazy.

I hope your little ones are not too sick.  And, that you survive.

Hugs, Lu

mine are 9 and a half years apart and that happens here too. My husband is 54 and his sister is 50 and they lovingly sound pretty much the same!
