these girls are 2 years apart. sometimes i wonder if they even like each other. ive been having a really difficult time with them as of late. they argue, fight, hit, argue, tattle on each other, fight, whine, cry, fight, argue, argue & fight.
fewwwww.... get the picture?
it makes me so sad ( and frustrated ) when they are constantly at battle with one another. i grew up with 2 brothers. i wanted a sister SOOO bad! all of my close friends friends growing up had sisters. every one of them. i was envious of them. i still get sad sometimes that i dont have a sister. i have really close girl friends, but nothing can match the love that sisters have for one another. i wanted that so bad growing up, and i want that for my girls.
when i see my darlings fighting all the time i tell them, " mommy didnt have sisters when she was little. she had to play with boys. she didnt have someone that wanted to play house, dolls, dress up, pretend, or fairies. so be glad that you have a sister! love each other! be bestest friends!"
but deep down, i know i cant force them. i know they love each other and that they will not always agree. i just want them to like each other. i want them to get along.... you know. i just want them to be happy and to be friends all their lives.
