Ok ladies help!
DH and I are exhausted and we just completed week 1 of 6.
We will not survive these two awesome children if they continue to fight one another at the non stop level they've done the last week.
We can divide and conquer, but honestly we would like to be a family unit and enjoy everyone together at least on occasion.
I realize too much togetherness for any two kids can lead to trouble, but they are mostly during the day at separate day camps until we get off work.( we are taking vacation from work in a next week). So literally it's only 5:30pm till bed and the early morning getting dressed/eating and drop off that they are together right now (not including the weekends).
It was so bad Saturday the 4 yr old was screaming she doesn't want a brother and giving DH every detail of every wrong ever done to her in the history of her 4 year old life by her brother. She even told DH she wanted to live with DH and to send SS to live with BM.
Of course that set my SS off in hysterics of "she hurt my feelings". I feel like breaking out one of those "THIS is our Get Along" shirts. Have you seen them?
