Tiny Talk Tuesday

The kiddos are still adjusting to being together all the time and we've had some good ol' sibling spats. (ok, knock down, drag out, screaming and yelling...you get the idea).

I've tried several approaches to get them to get along, but it's like trying to talk to my dad or brothers when they are watching TV.

This morning: (after another textbook sib spat)
Josh: Ellie, should we try to be nice to each other today?
Ellie: Ok.

20 minutes later....

(insert screaming, yelling over some essential item they both needed immediately from one another)

Me: I thought you were going to be nice to each other today?
Josh: We were, but it takes a while to get used to it!

Apparently, some habits are hard to break.

Check out some more cute talk at Mary's.

That's too funny. Well, I guess it was good while it lasted?

Well at least you got 20 minutes of peace!!! I remember when I was little my mom sent us to our own rooms A LOT in the summer...and then we were sent OUTSIDE ALOT, too. I guess that kept the sibling rivalry to a minimum for her!!

I am SO glad it isn't just my house...sigh...

Hope they "get used to it soon"!

Happy TTT!
