It’s not yet 10am on Saturday morning and already I’ve had to shut the TV off and send kids to separate rooms. I’ve found myself saying such crazy things as, “you HAVE to let your brother breathe! It’s part of basic living!” and “DO NOT shake your cereal at him!”
I love love love having the kids home on weekends because we don’t have the rigid schedule of the school days, but when they start out like this, I kinda just want to call it a day and have us all go back to bed. Do over!
Why is it that kids want to constantly pick at each other over EVERYTHING?
Since going back to bed isn’t an actual option, I’ve restarted the day by turning off the TV and handing out chores in different rooms of the house. Perhaps a little silent work will encourage everyone to think twice about picking on each other over the way the breathe, eat, walk or sneeze.
