My children, less than two years apart, have been bickering lately. It makes me crazy. So tonight at bedtime I asked them what they liked about each other.
My son to his little sister:
I like you because you don’t snore. Oh, and I guess because mom likes you.
My daughter to her big brother:
I love you because you are nice to me.
I love you because you play with me.
I love you because you let me hug you.
I love you because you teach me sports and help me.
I just love you.
My son back to his little sister:
I love you because if you weren’t around, I wouldn’t have anyone to talk to.
I think that’s progress!
