You Gotta Keep ‘Em Separated

You know you’re a mom when you hear a rockin’ song on the way to work and it instantly reminds you of sending your kids to their rooms when they fight, which, thankfully, isn’t too often.

You know you’re getting old when you realize the rockin’ song is from 1994.

Do your kids fight? This is all new to me since I’m considerably younger than my siblings and was raised almost like an only child. My girls tend to either get along splendidly or fight. There doesn’t seem to be much middle ground.

    FWIW, ella has five invisible siblings and they STILL argue. LOL i think it is just something a child needs to do, to try out different ways of interacting during conflicts until they find something that works.

    It is a fact of life my dear. My brother and I fought ALL the time and my Mama and Daddy didn’t get it, because they were both only children. Brian is the same as you, all if his were older, so he doesn’t get it either. Me? I’m used to it. It is the way things are. I tend to let it go on longer than Brian, because I know it is usually just a brotherly thing. Either that, or after all these years of it, my hearing is going…hmmmm…:)

    My son and daughter were 13 months apart and they fought all the time in their pre- teen and teen years. It would make me so upset. I thought that they would hate each other, when they grew up. Now…they are best friends.Balisha.

    Thankfully school is back in session for us full time this week in Nashville as they were around each other a little “too” much. 😉

    They do get along most of the time but I have had to “keep ’em separated” and send them to their rooms!

    i am pretty lucky with my teens. so far the only fights have been over who has to clean the hedgehog cage and who gets firewood.

    Well my two are 6 and 2 (almost 3) and they argue/fight sometimes, but they play together too. I figure it is just part of being a kid. I mean if Baby Girl has a friend over they do the fight/play/fight thing until the other kid goes home. I try not to let it bother me.
