New minivan (on the other side of the road.)
There has been lots of change for us thus far in 2013. The kids are adjusting to new teachers, a different curriculum, much, much more homework, making new friends….
…but one of the toughest “new” aspects is found within the temporary living quarters that we have a the moment: sharing a bedroom.
I shared a bedroom with my sister for years, and I know how tough it can be, so I can’t imagine having to share a room with a big brother (or from Boo’s perspective, with his little sister).
Despite all the petty battles, too-late-because-he/she-is-talking-bedtimes, bickering and poking, they are finding ways to co-exist.
Tractors and tiaras. Princess pink and John Deere green. Finding a balance.
Maybe new isn’t all that bad.
