But sometimes Husband and I cannot help laughing at what comes out of their mouths when the arguing hits a peak.
Like this morning. DD2 wanted to use the computer DD1 was using. Apparently this was less than acceptable to DD1, but it escalated when DD2 started to STARE at her. (The all effective little-sister-stare maneuver. A classic.) DD1's response to this historic tactic?
"AAAAAUUUUUGGGGGHHHHH - - She is staring at me! Her veins are bulging and pulsing and RED!!!!!"
So, the mental image that Husband and I get is that this child...
has morphed in to this child...
(but with redder, more bulgy eyes)
Of course our laughing didn't help the hysteria that was going on in the other room - and already on the sixth day of the year our Parents-of-the-Year award is in the toilet... but who knew losing that award would be so funny?
Oh, is that wrong?
