Siblings in February


It's half term and as much as I'd love to say the kids have been getting on like a house on fire the same way they did in the Christmas holidays, it would be a downright lie haha.

For whatever reason they're fighting like cat and dog lately and honestly? it's so wearing.



We've already had a biting incident from Arch and I couldn't believe how hard he'd bitten Lil when she showed me. To the point where I genuinely think it could leave a scar on her shoulder. Although Lily did admit of her own free will that she's been shoving him first. 🙈

It's like I just can't leave them alone together at the minute!?

I think a lot of it is due to being cooped up indoors so much this half term. The weather has been awful, I think we've managed to get out in the garden about twice in the last few weeks and it's a shame because the only place they seem to play nicely together of late is outdoors. Chasing one another around and playing hide and seek.


I went to the point of pretending to leave the kitchen yesterday to spy on them through the door whilst they were eating dinner. I stood and watched Lily as she wound Archer up over and over again. Picking chips off his plate and throwing them at his head 🙄 I stormed back in and shouted at her and she was sheepish when she knew she'd been caught but it has made me wonder whether a lot of the bickering has been oriented by Lily. Did anyone elses older siblings ever go through a stage like this?

Archer for his part seems to hate the fact that Lily isn't at school and that he isn't getting all my attention in the day. He goes nuts when she tries to sit on my knee and he's back to shouting MY MUMMY at her if she dares.

These kids!


So yeah, not the best update for these two this month, haha. I'm not overly worried, I know rationally that it's just a sibling thing and they'll have their ups and downs with each other their whole lives, this is just the start of it. But I'm hoping they'll go back to being the besties they were at Christmas again sooner rather than later..for all of our sanity's!
