You are my Sunshine, my only Sunshine! But…

Oh my freakin’ BLAHHHHHH! Why do my kids have to argue with each other about everything? Is it normal? I don’t know, maybe it’s just the time of year.

I swear they used to get along see…
<---- Okay so that was in 2005 but still, where is the brother / sister camaraderie! (check out Ginger's extremely cute little ears peeking from the bottom!) Pie’s been using her “whiney” voice, and for some reason her friends and her have this new thing where they talk like babies, it’s seriously driving me bonkers. Mr.T. is in all out teenager-better-than-you-and-by-the-way-Mom-you-have-no-idea-what-you’re-talking-about-so-I’m-going-to-debate-with-you-about-every-little-thing-and-Oh-I-can’t-hear-you-anyway-mode. ARRGHH!

Pie: Unnhhh Uh Uh
Me: What??
Pie: He’s eating a banana!!!!!
Me: Who?
Pie: T……………… (whiney voice) is eating a banana, I was gonna eat a banana, now he’s eating a banana and that’s the one I was gonna eat in the morning! (to T: that’s my banana!)
Me: Pie you cannot claim a banana for future eating, you just can’t
Pie: But… I was gonna eat that one!!
Me: Sorry
Super Genius: What’s going on?
Me: Nothing


smile. breathe. smile. Can’t wait til Jazzercise in the morning :)

    They get it from their dad. Trust me, it's a family trait. ;)

    It sounds like playgroup this week when they all want the same toy.

    I can't tell you about girls, but our 3 boys fought like cats and dogs in their mid years. Now in their 20's, all married and love doing stuff with one another. It'll happen – patience!

    Thank you for the glimmer of hope gary!
    I keep telling them they're all each other's got!
