“No head locks!”
I never thought I’d use this phrase as much as I do. You see, I’m a mom of two wonderful kiddos who are absolute darlings on their own but a potential nightmare when they get together. Specifically, I’ve witnessed WWF-style attacks that start with adorable sibling play and end with someone in tears. (A few times, that someone was me.)
It’s easy for me to see that these two are following a well-beaten path. My once delicate baby is now the adventurous toddler whose existence is a threat to my five-year-old son and his Legos.
Sharing toys is the ultimate challenge for them, which means it’s currently my biggest parenting struggle. Even though sibling rivalry is as old as Cain and Abel, I’m new to it as a mom. I have so many questions for God (plus every mom ever) on how to make the madness stop.
