Someone recently told me that she admired how I never said that one kid was easy. She said that most mothers with more than one child will make comments about how easy it is to have one kid. I thought that was a funny thing for her to say because I absolutely think all the time that one kid sure is easier than two.
I know that I'm right about this. People who tell you otherwise are either lying or have forgotten what it is like to raise children. Or maybe it's just my kids that don't get along.
My wonderful parents took Luke home with them to Arizona until next Wednesday and I feel like I am on vacation. I have all these projects I want to complete during the next few days before I go to Baltimore. It sure is easy to get things done without kids fighting and tormenting each other all day long.
Charlie seems really happy without Luke. I let him drink out of Luke's precious Superman cup.
Then, I let Charlie play with Luke's trains. He was in heaven. Luke would kick Charlie in the head if he saw this picture.
Don't get me wrong. We miss Luke. Please believe me. It's just sooooooo nice not to have as much fighting and screaming in the house between the two boys. If anything, this is inspiring me to really try to help them to play nicely together.
