the bicker sisters
The children are bickering lately.
I know, this after I just posted yesterday about them being sweet to each other with the drums at preschool.
I don’t know if this is the new normal.
Or if the increase in bickering is a result of a week of sick mama and lots of tv time.
I’m kind of at a loss.
(Note: Not asking for advice. I find asking the internet for advice to usually be a mistake. Sorry, Internet. I love you, but you frighten me sometimes.)
I am certain that this will not be the height of the sister bickering.
I predict that will come in about 10 years.
However, I think (THINK) it’s my job to teach them some tools now to deal with conflict, so then when they are 12 & 14 and are bickering, I can say “I DID NOT TEACH YOU TO TREAT EACH OTHER THIS WAY.”
That’s what it’s all about, right?
