It’s been a great start to March for these two monkeys of mine. I haven’t be able to say that in a long time and it feels great! The sun has been shining for us showcasing promises of a good Spring ahead. The kids have been scooting around like little whizzes on their scooters together. It only took MM a few tries on her new scooter like her brother’s to figure out how to go fast. Man, do those things go fast. We have helmets and guards on order, I couldn’t believe it. Even I hopped on one and went flying. March has been kind to us after a long few dragged months behind us. I think it’s going to be our best one yet. We have been getting out so much more this year and putting away those pesky ipads. We have been crafting more too and just getting more creative with things outdoors. Even after dinner going for family walks which has been so refreshing. I can feel the difference in the kids behavior so much.
These two have been getting into some great conversations. MM is getting older and about to start school so she is full of questions about it. B is right there to tell her the ropes, secrets and adventures about reception at school. I love listening to them get so detailed in their conversations. Sometimes I wish I could record them to share with you all. They can get far fetch and hilarious in minutes. Other times, serious and concerned for each other.
The competing has started between these two as much as they are best friends, they always have that, “I have to win” attitude. I don’t know where they get it. Actually, I do, my husband and I are nightmares for having to win, competing, and being the best at what we are doing. hahah These kids have no chance. I knew it would start to show up sooner or later. Well, it’s here. When you ask them to have a race, well, you best watch out! One will end in tears or accuse the other of cheating to win. It’s entertaining but also frustrating when you just want to have a nice time at the park. We have constantly say before we get to the park now, no racing. But then I secretly think it’s good for them to learn to lose and motivate the other to do better. It’s in my nature.
TOGETHER THEY ARE LOVING…

Spring arriving and not wearing coats.
While my two finally found something that really gets their blood pumping with each other they are still quick to make up. I know it will come more often as they grow up, and things annoying the other. I remember it well with my own siblings when I was growing up. I still feel so grateful to have these two around to entertain us, to be apart of our lives, to remind us how amazing a bond between two siblings is so strong and so lovely to witness.
Check out our project as we go along. The many ups and downs of sibling life and my two growing up before our very eyes here. We have lots more adventures planned and awaiting to be shared with you all. Stay tuned!
