Eli and his buddy, Benjamin, outside during the fire drill.
Wednesday, June 3, 2009
Seriously, Eli and Leah used to be best buddies. Now, all they do is fight from the minute they wake up, literally. The fighting started before 7am today. I can't take it. When they fight, I try to break it up as best as I can, but I'm not a good referee. It's not shouting, just wrestling and bugging each other. You know, poking and kicking and pushing and stupid, annoying, little stuff that builds up to them screaming and crying and hurting each other. I try giving them time-outs and putting them in their rooms. It doesn't seem to help too much. Got any suggestions? Our place is kind of on the small side, so I think part of the problem is there's not too many places for them to go to get away from each other. But they don't exactly want to get away from each other either. I'm at a loss. HELP!!!
Oddly, when I read books, I don't picture the characters' faces. I can picture bodies, scenery, pretty much everything else, just not faces. I don't know why.
Going along with the Twilight theme, have you seen the official movie trailer for New Moon? Holy crap, I'm excited!!!! I had my doubts, but once I saw Jacob do his thing, I almost cheered. Leah was on my lap watching with me. She got excited too. Since then, every time I get on the computer, she asked me if we can watch the vampires. Do you think it's too soon for her to start reading the books?
