Bovers

I have to say that the boys have gotten along pretty good this break! I don't know if it's all the new toys they got; that are keeping them occupied, or if they are just growing up a bit?

I've always been envious of my sister's kids connecting more than my own. Elijah was born, and his brother Evan got in his face kissing and telling him he was cute all the time. As soon as Elijah was big enough to walk, he was accepted as one of the big kids. Mica could care less about babies at the time. He did his best to stay away from Isaak. I tried including him. Then when Isaak was old enough to walk, Mica called him a baby. He wouldn't allow him to play with him.

It just seems like they are playing better together. More so than they used to. As soon as I say something like, "WOW you boys are playing so good together!" they start fighting soon after. I should just keep my mouth shut. Enjoy the peace.

Mica said, "Isaak you're a friend to me now." Isaak said, "You're not my friend! You're my bover." *brother

The other day I said, "You two are so cute!" Isaak said, "Mom I'm the only one that's cute. I'm the smallest. Smaller things are cute." I replied with, "Well you're a cute 4 year old and Mica's a cute 7 year old. How about that?" Isaak said, "I guess so."

Whenever I give Isaak a snack, he asks for more to give it to Mica.

With all that being said, they still wrestle, kick, punch and hit. They happily do these things until someone gets hurt; then it's over. Isaak wants me to feel sorry for him; just about every time. He sticks out his bottom lip and says, "Mica punched me!" My response every time is, "What did you do to him?" I don't feel too sorry for either one, when they both took part in it. Some of that is just being boys though.

Here's a unedited Christmas photo of the bovers *brothers:

Smaller things are cute, lol but yes generally and he is right. Boys are like that, Sisters act more maturely, bovers generally fight. BTW, the picture is really cute :)

Best picture ever! My second oldest and his older brother shared a room for a couple of years when they were younger. They fought. The youngest of the two, when I would tell them to clean up, would put his stuff on his brother's side of the room and say his side was clean. -_- They get along famously now, and are extremely close to one another.

I love the picture. :)

I love the photo! Very cute! My girls are 4 1/2 years apart, so I get where you are coming from. Some days they love the pieces out of each other, other days they just want to tear each other to pieces. I have faith they will be the best of friends when they move out someday though!

My Hubs thought your Christmas Card was GREAT!! He said, she must be a real character. LOL...

I only had one child so I didn't have to go through the sibling fights... but my Granddaughters have gotten into fist fights... and that was when they were little. Now and 19 and 20 they still argue a lot... I don't know if it ever ends.

the boys like aggravating Broxton now... when he was smaller, they wanted to play with him.. but now, they just want to annoy him....
wonder if we ever have another if he will be a loving brother or if they will argue all the time...

Ash said the same thing! "Britt's not my friend! She's my sister!" I said, "She's your friend AND your sister." But I hear ya, sometimes they spend weeks at each others throats and then all of a sudden they spend all afternoon playing a sweet game together. And then we get all hopeful. I don't know why I think they shouldn't fight. My best friend growing up was my brother and we were nasty to each other sometimes. :) It's just the way siblings are.

Honestly, my two boys are the exact same way. They can be best friends one minute and mortal enemies the next. And usually, it's the latter. They spend more time bickering - it drives me nuts. Your boys are completely normal, but one day, they really are going to be best friends!

My kids fight constantly! Drives me bonkers when Zoe comes crying because Gav hurt her, or won't let her tag. There are days though they just love and hug each other:)

That picture is totally awesome!!
