These Girls Fight?

Yes, I am so done with the fighting around here! I'm mostly tired of yelling just so I can be heard. I decided to talk to the girls and get some feed back from them on what they would do if they were me. How would they handle the whole "consequences for my actions"deal. I was pretty excited with their answers. We shall see how long this will last and if it really works. If you have any other good options for me, let me know! Here's what they came up with. . . .
1. Whoever is fighting must go to the bathroom together. *The bathroom represents being too close together and being uncomfortable. 2. They must talk it out and say I'm sorry. 3. They can come out of the bathroom and play a game together. 4. They must give each other a nice compliment.

I love how they still let you dress them in matching clothes. Sooo cute. My boys would NEVER. I am with you on this one girlfriend. I almost ripped my hair out today. Hooray for school starting. The change of pace and routine will give everyone a break, I think.

Play a game together? At our happy home that is more opportunity to fight (she is cheating, he's not being nice, she messed up the game board . . .) But you probably have better game options than Candy Land and Chutes & Ladders :)

Let me know how it goes. The bathroom thing would NEVER work at our house because of the gender dynamics.

I love the bathroom idea!!! My parents use to make us stare at each other. Looking back do I have great memories of staring at my siblings, nope I just remember having to do it. Good luck!!! They are still way to cute. Everybody compliments your picture on our fridge!!

I can't believe your cute little girls would ever fight. My kids have to wash baseboards when they fight too much, but most of all, I think being back in school will help. They just can't handle being around each other that much. Ahhh..Peace and quiet today - yeah!
