Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.

Naughty, naughty


As usual my children have impeccable timing. We are about to go to the mat with school over whether to keep the girls together next year or split them up. We are leaning strongly towards keeping them together for a myriad of reasons.

Just as I has compiled my arguments, found the data to back up keeping them together and got my head in the right place to "go to battle" the girls have found a way to sabotage my plans at school. They have (in the past few days) begun getting into fights at school. Grace bosses Abby around, Abby cries, Grace hits, Abby hits back (or vice versa). Seriously??? I wanted to throttle the both of them. So now I am sure (even if this is an isolated incident) that this will be fuel for schools proverbial fire.

I am hoping and praying this doesn't become a habit. If that is the case then we as a family have to seriously consider splitting them up. The teachers certainly should not have to deal with two siblings in a wrestling match.

The thing that is irking me a little about the situation is the fact that I know these types of "fights" have occurred amongst other kids in the classroom over the course of the year but it was handled different. Just because they are sisters does that mean it is a more serious offense? It seems to me that in the interest of fairness the girls fighting in school should be handled like any other two kids fighting in school. Am I wrong?

Anyway, hopefully it doesn't happen again. Kids...

If the fighting's a habit then I think you're right--it's not really fair to put that on to the teacher. Otherwise, no big whoop. My sis was a teacher and she would have loved to have a thoughtful parent like you. Parent participation in education is at a very low point. Glad to hear that there are other parents out there taking responsibility for their kids inside and outside the classroom!

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
