The dynamic between my three kids is ebbs and flows. Sometimes great, others it’s the WORST. Growing up, I was an only child until I was 10, and then I had siblings who were 10, 12 & 14 years younger than me. I always envied how they got to grow up together. Well fast forward 10 ish years, viola, we have 3 kids. I honestly just don’t remember my siblings fighting and bickering like my kids do. I probably wasn’t paying close attention or this didn’t happen with them.
The kids break off into pairs and there’s always a single. They rotate. I think it works good for them, once they get sick of one sibling they move to the next. If someone needs alone time, then they get it.
It really hits hard when we go to the park and I hear their laughter, see their smiles. THIS is what having siblings is all about. I LOVE when they laugh & play together. There isn’t a better feeling. It makes me even more happy and proud that I get to experience all of this with my best friend. It’s such a learning experience and I’m so thankful that B is so patient, loving & compassionate. Hooray for best friends.
