That is pretty much how I would describe my vision of having two boys.
I thought there would be lots of playing ball and trains together, peppered by occasional fighting.
It's not really like that. I am not sure if it is the age difference or what, but they fight....a lot. They fight over toys, cars, balls, who is first, who is last, who gets buckled in the car seat first, who is last getting out of the car. You name it, they compete over it.
If they are in the same room for a period of time, guaranteed there will be bickering.
I have gotten used to it. Accepted it. Realized my vision was not at all reality.
Then tonight, it was as if a cloud lifted and they actually spent a considerable time playing together. Throwing the ball to one another, taking turns jumping on me, dancing with each other....it was glorious and just as I imagined it would be.
Kayden even pulled Bryce into his lap and told me to go grab my camera.
and I happily obliged.
