They bring each other so much joy. {+Tuesday’s Toddler Tales linky}

As I sit here at the cabin, I get to see how much my kids really love each other. I see it at home quite a bit, but it is fun to see other peoples reaction to my kids’ interaction with each other. Since at some point in the night, both children end up sleeping with me, when one wakes up, it is usually only a short time before they wake up the other one.  As any mom knows, that tends to lead to crabby kids.  With Maggie and Charlie, it does, and for a second, the kid that was woken up will cry….and then, see the other one which leads to two little monkeys laughing in bed.  It really is a great way to wake up every day!

Sibling Love, our piece of Earth

Maggie is {usually} very good at sharing.  Just today, Charlie wanted more cheese with his lunch, and as I went to get him some from the fridge, Maggie tells me, it’s okay mom, I gave him some of mine.  So sweet, especially considering how much she loves her cheese.  Being the big sister, Maggie can always be found trying to “help” Charlie.  Sometimes, it is by holding his hand and walking with him.  Other times, she {eek} picks him up, usually by the head.  She just loves him and wants to help him so much.


Dinner time itself, usually leads to lots of giggles from across the table.  They are both eating peacefully, and then suddenly, one of them thinks the other is funny.  After a few seconds, they both end up laughing, then, mom and dad both end up laughing.  Could life be any better?  The answer – NO!


I know that it won’t always be this way.  There will be fighting at some point, but for now, I will kick back and enjoy the laughter and joy when they make eye contact with each other.  There is no doubt in mind that they are best buds and love each other so much.  I’ll skip the sibling rivalry in hands for sibling love right now.


When we found out we were pregnant with Charlie, people thought we were crazy – that 20 months would be too close together and cause problems.  That hasn’t been the case.  It has been love from the start.  My sister and I are 18 months apart and great friends now.


Toddler Tuesday
Each week, we are linking up for Tuesday’s Toddler Tales.  This week’s topic is sibling rivalry/silbing love.  Next week, we are sharing our summer safety tips.  Link up your post – old or new!


How do your little ones interact with each other?  Do you see more sibling love or rivalry?  


    • Hopefully next week I can get it posted in time! I got a little spaced out on the days of the week. Not use to going to the cabin on a Monday.

  • That’s so great that your babies get along so well! We have two boys (3 & 1.5 years old) and they fight more than anything. Not angry fight or fist fight but their sharing skills are so crappy no matter how hard I try and ingrain kindness and sharing. Big brother rules! 🙂 haha … I know one day they will become the bestest of friends – but for now, they love each other but definitely need a mediator.

    • I think it must help that they are different genders. Although that may not really have anything to do with it. My daughter is so very good at sharing most of the time though.
