Looking back on the past 7 years I can’t believe how close we had the kids. 2 months after being married we got pregnant. From there we had kids 17 months apart and then 15 months apart. It was crazy then and it’s crazy now, but I don’t think I would do anything differently. Just looking back I don’t know how we did it.
My girls in particular are independent, competitive, opinionated, out spoken, strong willed girls. I’m not sure where they got all this from! Just kidding! I know exactly where these personality traits stem from. They got a good mix of Ben and myself. Ben can be almost unreasonably competitive, I am outrageously outspoken, strong willed and opinionated. So there you have it. The problem is, you put all these traits together in one house with girls that are nearly the sane age and lots of fights break out.
We are in a stage right now that is just exhausting. Ava 6, Savannah nearly 5, on a daily basis find something to fight over, be better at, tell on one another over, etc. There’s even some pulling of hair and some pushing. All I can think is, if this what life is like with 5 and 6 year old girls, what am I going to do when they are 15 and 16. I know I sound dramatic but I’m just soo tired of convincing, mainly Ava (the more mean one! Lol) that family is first and that we need to always choose love. I know that one day it will all sink in. But for now Ava can’t stand the sigh of Savannah (at least it seems this way) and every 5 minutes I have one of them running up to me with a complaint about the other one. I’m sure it’s all normal, but at times it makes me a bit sad and definetly upset! Luckily no season lasts a life time and this too shall pass! Any advice on getting girls to get along?!?? ?. Thanks so much for reading the blog!!
