I love this time of year.
I don't know about your kids but mine bicker, some days are better than others, but by now I can tune them out like a champ.
Unless one has blood streaming down my face, I don want to hear what one did to the other.
I know....I sound like I don't care, but I do, our house rule is treat others as how you would like to be treated,
This is how it goes.......running footsteps towards me.
Mommy, Mommy, Jake did this to me....its usually a scuffle, but well enough to drum up crocodile tears and no marks visible.
Jake interrupts, I stopped her from hitting me and she got mad.
I reply, is that true......no mommy Jake wouldn't let me hit him and he was laughing at me.....
You see Jake is 12 and our youngest is 5.
So, I send them on their way and tell Kate not to hit and she turns around and says, I am not, Jake wouldn't let me. (as i try not to laugh....hehehe)
Our middle child was sick this week, so we laid low and needless to say everyone was bored.
So, today started off with a bang!
We finished up getting school supplies and clothes....I love this part!
