Each of my girls has their own limit on each other. Gaby, will not tolerate anything. Julie, will nag and continue to pick until you break and Bri, well she will just tattle on them (which I have to admit I do love. They cant get away with much once Bri started saying full sentences). Is this normal? Are sisters suppose to irritate each other so much? Sometimes its too much though. I mean I am a Woman and I know I am hormonal but GOOD LAWD!!! I even have limits with these girls. I feel lost sometimes listening to their arguments, they really argue about nonsense. Let me take you to one I remember the most a couple years ago:
Gaby: Oh my Gawd Julie, you don’t even know me
Julie: Yes, I do. You’re my sister
Gaby: You haven’t known me your whole life
Julie: Yes, I have you my older sister
Gaby: Yea, But I’m older so you haven’t known me my whole life. So, you don’t know everything about me.
Julie: Yes, I do. Ask me something.
Gaby: Fine, what’s my favorite shape?
Julie: A heart.
Gaby: ERRRR! Wrong, it’s a diamond.
Julie: Ok, ask me another one.
Gaby: What is my favorite color then?
Gaby: Wrong, it’s the brown orange
Julie: Ok, I may not know your favorite shape or color but I know my colors and that’s called bronze.
See, what I’m sayin’ people? Now it’s basically the same thing but they added a little spice to it like slammin my doors. Let me describe my favorite added ingredient they’ve come up with, they clench a fist at each other, pull back and sit there threatening the other with threats like “you want this”, “Don’t make me do it”, “Im gonna tell Dad”, “Its gonna hurt, you don’t want the beast to come out” with fists in air and they go round and round in a cirlcle. Then here comes Bri “Momma, Gaby and Julie are fighting do you want me to make you a cupcake”(Thank you Bri, because I cannot see them 3 ft in front of me and yes a cupcake would make this scene so much better) Please keep in mind my kids are like stick figures and weigh far below their weight standard by today’s Doctor’s. By the time it reaches this point, Im fairly amused. May seem bad to some, but you know they try so hard to make my life difficult in just about any way they can. No homework done, a simple disagreement with eachother, mess in my loft, bathroom left a mess, missing make-up from my room, my shoes being stolen. So, why not sit and watch the little shenanigans they call a miserable life. Don’t get me wrong, I will step in if anything gets physical. But for now, its all show and I am fully entertained. So, tell me my dear readers Is this normal sisterly love? Or is this just like the women issue with men. Men will never understand Women, because we don’t understand ourselves half of the time.
Don’t get me wrong, I am only describing the bad days. Most days now that they have joined soccer together they act like they have never fought. Are they crazy, are we crazy…? Yes and No, let me indulge in the truth Men. Yes, we are a little crazy and No, we are not born this way. We are simply pushed to the edge with constant repeating of “throw the trash please”, “Do not put your shoes on the couch”. If you would just listen when we ask nicely we will not get crazy and freak out into Linda Blair in exorcist mode. so, basically my girls are little broom stick riders in training, I guess. I think it's safe to say they are preparing eachother for a bit of life.
I really hope this advice helps some couples out there and I pray my girls will all get along soon, before I check myself into a nuthouse, just some wishful thinking.
I share bits and pieces of my life with everyone and please remember it is all humor.
