Help! Cheryl got so much good advice on the biting, I too will bring my problem before you and beg your mighty mama minds to help me!
Since the weather has changed, and we are floating away in the ark-bound northwest, my boys are now house-monkeys. Yes, I suppose I could still throw a life-jacket on them and toss them in the backyard, but somehow I think CPS wouldn’t agree on that being a fine idea. Sooo….
They are fighting like little maniacs. Constantly. Constantly. Constantly. If I turn my back for two seconds to do a chore, get dressed, make myself some breakfast, feed Abby, they are at each others’ throats. Beanie even bit the snockers out of Jeff the other day, leaving a large purple welt on his belly and a perfect set of teethmarks as a souvenir. It’s bad.
So what’s a mama to do? This is one of the perrils of having kids so close in age, I think, but it’s also not OK with me- so I ask any more experienced moms out there: Short of duct-taping them in the corner, what can I do to restore harmony to our home?
Now I must go be Mama, as they are at it again…. (it’s gonna be a looooong winter)
