I spent my evening watching a friend of mine's children so that she could go out to a romantic dinner with her husband for her birthday. Alison had a great time playing with them and we had a fun night.
However, at one point in the evening, when the 3.5 year old was getting pummeled by the 20-month old, I had a moment of clarity. My sisters and I used to fight like this when we were kids.
The same kicking and hair pulling and scratching.
The same screaming and sitting on and petty reasons.
And then I realized that this is what I have to look forward to with my lovely ladies. Right now, Emmy will pull Ali's hair and it's funny, but the time is coming soon when she may get her hair pulled back.
Pray for my sanity.
