Day 441

You can learn heaps from kids ... like how much patience you have for a start.

Today is Tuesday.  School only finished last Friday.  Already the bickering has begun.  This could well be a bloody long summer ...

My kids didn't always fight. Actually it's a new phenomenon.  It really only started this year. They've always really cared for each other and played well together. I think the four year age gap is starting to show now that Tahlia is a tweenie and Darbs is still in the midst of kidnom.  Plus their very different personalities. Oh, and that one is a boy and one is a girl I guess.  Tahlia wants to just hang around and rest at the moment, and Darby is full of energy and needs a friend.  Neither is getting what they want.  Frustration.  Argy bargy.  Screaming. Tears.

Sigh.

Yep, you can learn a lot from your kids.  I've learned that my patience is paper thin ...
