The fighting....

Little did Ray and I know that having two girls 2.5 years apart would create two human beings who would rather fight with each other over every.little.thing than actual be nice for a few minutes.

The fighting seems to never stop. Ashley touches Audrey, Audrey hits Ashley back. One is sitting in the other one's way, one gives the other one the stink eye.

Yes, really sometimes they fight over stupid stuff. I am shocked, I know.

Most of the time the arguments are created over competition and Ashley bragging that she gets to do something her sister does not. Like who gets their vitamins first in the morning. Who goes down the stairs first. Who takes a shower first.

But then we have a morning like this one. Audrey announced she was line leader, Ashley wanted to ride piggyback down the stairs (yes, she is too big for this, but if it would get them downstairs and eating breakfast, I am willing to ride a skateboard down the stairs...). Audrey then saw she was missing out on riding on my back, and threw a fit. To which Ashley said her sister could do it instead of her.

Then at the bus stop, Audrey actually gave her sister a hug. To which I said I needed to write this date down, a day when they were actually nice to each other. So this is me writing it down.

We are living the same life! Mine fight over the color of their vitamins even. Luckily, they are not fighting over the baby....yet! It is sure to come.

I have to say that John and I have realized lately with all of the drama we have going on with Kylie, we are very lucky Josh is a boy, because we know that if he was a girl, our lives would be so much worse and we would have so much more drama to deal with.

I guess the bright side is that once they get to college they will probably be friends, right? At least that's when my sister and I stopped fighting...
