The Brotherly Battles are Beginning

Up until now Caleb has only bothered Luke on accident...knocking his tower down while trying to scoot around it, coloring on his page because he just wants to color to. In the last few days Caleb has now started to bug Luke just to bug Luke. He as taken to knocking over his trains because he enjoys watching Luke scream, "CAAAAALEEEEEB!" He smiles and laughs at Luke's turmoil. Already this morning Caleb wacked Luke on the back of the head with a toy car to which Luke retaliated by hucking a bigger toy car at Caleb's face. Yep, we had lots of tears and blood!!! Advice??? Pleeease!!!

Um, maybe you can exchange the boys for new ones? Hope you kept the receipt! :) KIDDING! I have NO idea what to tell you other than when Brit and I used to fight (she actually scratched me and drew blood with her fingernails one time!) my mom would make us apologize and hug, which is absolute torture, but we love each other now, so...

OR, you can just bust out the wooden spoon like Kari ;) haha. Which I never saw her actually use, but it was definitely a powerful threatening tool! Mostly for Brad. :)

This is just starting now? You are lucky! I have been dealing with this for a couple months now. Katie gets this look in her eye and just does things that throw Anna into a rage. It's kind of funny in some ways, but so exhausting to deal with all the time. I'm not sure the best way to deal with it, I'm totally trying to figure it out myself still!

Let the refereeing (is that a word?)begin! Some days, I swear I am more of a negotiator than a mom. But you also get the flip side as they get older. They can play for hours without a complaint.

Separate rooms, locked doors??? My mom liked to pull out her spatula and run around threatening us all! Sorry no good advice from this corner. Going through the same issue myself :)

We have this problem too in our house. If you figure out a solution let me know.
