Wow my kids are going through a really crazy stage! They are 3.5 and 2 right now and most of the time my daughter is very loving towards her brother. But lately she is being really rough on him and they are fighting over toys and everything else. My son just adores his sister and does pretty much whatever she does. So when she does things she shouldn't he just follows right along. I think sometimes my son listens to my daughter more than he listens to me. When people see them in public they think they are soo cute because they hold hands and hug and I have been getting lots of comment like "it's great they are close in age because they have each other to play with or you have your hands full." I feel bad sometimes because I get upset with my daughter but I really want my daughter to be a good role model for her brother. On the other hand my daughter can be soo sweet to him and and is like another mommy to him. I tell her a lot that I think she is a great big sister and that I am very proud of her! I just hope this stage of fighting wth each other gets better before it gets worse. I have also been spending individual time with each of my kids and it feels special to them and I really enjoy it too! They always miss each other saying "where is Sissy" or "where is TyTy" Do you ladies have any advice on the fighting?

My kids are a little bit of both LoL. They fight with one another, play well together at other times but whenever they are around other kids they ALWAYS have each others backs

Is baby Aubrey Alana or Jacob Robert?!

I feel like it's a war zone most of the day but they are loving too.

Busted lips and a scratched cornea have happened so far along with some bites, lots of pushing, pulling hair, and tons of screaming.
