The joy of siblings

I get asked a lot how the kids are getting along...

Whenever there is a disagreement as to what happened between two people, they have to sit together until they can come to a coherent story that is agreeable to both parties.

"Mama! Julia hit me!"
"No I not!"
"Yes, she hit me right here really hard!"
"No I not!"
"She hit me! See the red mark on my arm?" (for the record, I could not)
"Tim...Tim..." (Julia looking at her hand trying to find something Tim had done to her)

...pause...

"I hit her first but she hit me HARDER!"

Their punishment was to sit together on the freezer while I made dinner. ;)

The classic story of my dad and his brothers (which were VERY close in age) goes like this: An argument ensued in the back seat. When asked what happened, the response came "It all started when he hit me back!" :) Aren't kids great?

Hee hee, that is classic! Glad you documented it because they will love that one when they are older.
