Dallin and Hayleigh

These two have such a complicated relationship! They absolutely insist on playing together, but within 2 or 3 minutes they start to fight. We haven't figured out who REALLY starts it - not sure if it's Hayleigh teasing Dallin or Dallin getting Hayleigh mad, or maybe a combination of both things. Hayleigh's shrieks of "leave me alone" and "get away" are usually accompanied with Dallin's "I didn't do anything" and "she always tries to get me in trouble". So, we punish both - they both go to their rooms or sit and have a time out or we try to change the activity and get their attention elsewhere. BUT - then they complain they are bored and they want to go back to what they were doing!!! What the heck?????

Usually, I enjoy summer because I don't have to get up so early and pack lunches and sign school papers and write checks to the school for something that needs to be paid.......but this summer - I can't wait for the first day of school!

That's pretty funny! My oldest son has a cousin 7 months younger than him. They always want to play and be together but they also always fight! I was hoping you would have an answer as to why they do it.
