The Ramblings of a Redneck Diva

Kids are funny things
Topic: Mommy Moment
Either they are bickering at each other nonstop, threatening physical abuse or worse, death. They yell "SHE'S TOUCHING ME!" and "SHE'S BREATHING MY AIR!" and the like. They touch each other just so they can hear their sibling scream "SHE'S TOUCHING ME!" They swear they hate each other and that they wish they'd never had a brother/sister. They are noisy while they are doing all of this and I find myself counting to five. A lot. Slowly. Over. and. over.

Then other times they play together so well, squealing and screaming and giggling those adorable belly laughs that no adult is capable of. They share, for the love of God - they SHARE. They are loving and caring to each other and so protective of each other that I'd rather encounter a cranky badger with the DT's in a dark alley on a full moon than mess with the sibling they are protecting. I hear on the monitor (Yes, she's almost 3 and yes I still have a monitor in her room - so what?) things like "Sissy, you da best. Me loves you." and "God is cool for giving you to us, cuz you know Mom and Dad weren't planning on you." and "Sissy, can I marry you when I grow up?" and other sweet, precious things like that.

Being a mom is so cool.

What gets me is when they fight and it appears they are tired of each other; but, won't leave each other's company. I suggest alone time and the littlest one, who is screaming and whining the most, won't even hear of it! Then there are those times I suggest alone time because I NEED it.

Ain't that the TRUTH?!? Ab has finally figured out that her siblings, especially the 3 year old, do this to just bug the hell out of her. She has learned about "personal space" and I hear in my dreams, "Get outta my SPACE, dork!" and "You are SO in my SPACE! This is MY space!" and the best one "Mommmmmmmmmm! She is in my SPACE and she's doing. it. on. PURPOSE!" Well, duh. Otherwise, what would be the point?
