They coined the phrase Love/Hate


Ahh, my oldest children. 12 months apart, they have the strangest relationship. Currently, they have shut themselves into my closet and they are fighting over who is in whose (whoms?) personal dark space. They fight like crasy, but they refuse to seperate. They can't sleep unless the other is in the same room, when I pick one up from school they must know where the other is, and I've caught them cuddling when they didn't think I was watching before. Of course, they also hit each other a lot. We're working on that.

It's been so cool having siblings close together...I love their age gap! It was so much easier on us than on a lot of our friends who had a 2 or 2 1/2 year age gap...Ava literally cannot remember life before Jace. Good thing, because with the housing market in Florida right now, they will be sharing a room until they move out!
Happy Saturday to everyone...we are off to the post office to mail a second batch of bracelets out. As yours start rolling in, please let us know! I have to get off the computer and close my ears now, because Ava and Jace are saying a secret pledge that I am not allowed to hear. It is TOP Secret!

Too sweet...sibling love. At least they're entertaining each other! Oh, to be a kid again...when the closet was a castle, or school, or anyplace at all that you wanted to go. They will surely treasure these days!

That's a GREAT photo of them. =0)

I like the close age gaps, too. So many people thing a 'bigger gap' makes it easier. I disagree!

My brother and I were 2 years apart and had that same kind of relationship. We mostly beat each other up, but we were the first to come to the other's defense when necessary! I have been struggling with the spacing of our kids. I just freak out about not being able to afford more daycare and all of that, so for now we'll wait. By the time we get to it, they will probably be just shy of 3 years apart. Not what I wanted in the beginning, but hopefully it will work out for the best. :o) Oh, by the way, don't get confused by my last name in the paypal receipt. It says my maiden name, but it doesn't really matter!

Hey El!
We got our bracelets yesterday! My oldest are 16 months apart and are the same way (except the sleeping part...separate rooms.) When we moved it was awesome because they had each other and weren't all that stressed about trying to make new friends, etc.

Have a wonderful weekend!

So Funny! My oldest two boys are 16 months apart, and I don't think Henry has any memories of life without Grant! I'm glad to know that other people's kids act like that too...because mine are just like that!

I have two boys that fight all the time too. It drives me crazy to hear them screaming and hitting each other. When you find a solution please let me know.
