The Fight

My two older girls were fighting. They ripped things out of each others hands, and they cried, and they yelled, and they stomped, and they slammed doors, and they came running to tattle on each other.

“MOM! She won’t let me clean the toilet!!!”

Ivy and Clara

The children of which I speak not fighting. (I had to use an rather old picture because ever since we got a kitten I no longer photograph my children.)

As the mother I’m taking this as one of those good news/bad news situations.

The good news is that now my toilets are really clean.

The bad news is that some days my kids will use anything as an excuse to pick a fight.

    Oh my goodness. This is funny. Someday they will be fighting over who does NOT get to clean the toilet. 🙂 You can put this in their memory banks as a reminder.

      I guess if they are going to fight I’ll be grateful that anything gets cleaned in the process because you are right, this can’t possibly go on that long!

    “Mommmmmm! He’s looking at me again. Make him stop.”

    My kids all like each other now. None of them died from looking at each other. But for a while there, it was touch and go.

    If only my toilet were handy for them to clean!!

    Wow — I don’t think as a child I would have ever fought my sister over who gets to clean the toilet. Nope. That is pretty cute.
