You'd think that word would spark togetherness and comradary....right! Jay and I are at the end of our ropes with Timmy and Trae and their fighting. We have dealt with this for a few years now thinking it would get better and go away, but that's not happened. It's gotten worse. They aren't happy unless they're bugging eachother, telling on one another, pushing, shoving, hitting, teasing.....you name it. Timmy has this attitude that since he and Trae are practically the same size, he has to constantly remind him he's older, stronger, tougher. Soooo....on the event this weekend that broke the camel's back....Jay and I decided that the best way to get them to find a way to co-exist is to do just that....make them co-exist....in the same bedroom. The plan has always been that Tyler would get the second room downstairs once I was done with daycare and then Trae would take his place in the room with Timmy. Well, we moved that plan up a year. Tyler is now going to take the upstairs spare room and Trae will be moving in with his loving brother. Maybe if we do the opposite of what makes sense....something will change. Jay kept them up last night until I got home from work so we could have a talk and let them know the plan. We had already talked to Tyler about it the night before. We laid it all out there and told them that this stops NOW. That's it. It stops. I told them that from now on when they fight or are mean to one another there will be swift and serious consequences. They weren't allowed to talk...only listen. And they did, but we'll see how much good it did. All we can do is hope and pray.
They sure LOOK innocent enough.....
