This is rare these days. I shouldn't say it in such bleek terms, but the truth is, there is a lot of bickering and crying going on around here this summer. I've found that any time we aren't busy the girls just can't seem to get along, which surprises me considering they are 5 years apart. It's not all the time. Somtimes they love playing with each other. When it happens I rejoice and quickly attempt to check things off of my to-do list. (Or sit and stare at the walls.) Last night they went to bed together, and after I had read them a few stories they read to each other before they fell asleep all cuddled up together. I suppose I should simply be thankful instead of wishing for more peaceful moments like this. It's just the paint all over the back door and the glue all over every inch of Amelia's exposed skin and the huge piles of laundry and the never ever ever ending sink of dishes and the bickering, well those things get me down sometimes. Then I see this and in my heart I know it's going to be okay. It really, really is all going rather well.
