"W" is for....

"W" is for WHY MUST THREE CHILDREN ARGUE CONTINUOUSLY?????????? Seriously...I am not kidding here...My kids walked in the door from school, and it has been one never ending argument...

Things The Allen Children Argue about.......



  • who gets to use the timer for reading...

  • who gets to help Cade with his Backpack work (he is in preschool, and they love to help him...)

  • who has to set the table

  • who has to clear the table

  • starting homework

  • eating dinner, my youngest doesn't tolerate sitting through an entire dinner well....he whines

  • who has to get water for the dog

  • who has to get food for the cat

  • who gets a snack after dinner

  • who doesn't get a snack after dinner

  • who has to take a bath first

  • who has to sleep with Cade (he has no room for right now)

  • who has to pick up the toys ( I think there is a toy fairy that just spreads toys all over the house and no one seems to know how they get there....)

  • finishing homework

  • playing ball in the house

I think you get the idea....Believe me, I could go on...but I will spare you....this time...


Ok, I seriously just got up and had to intervene in yet another argument....Can you believe it?


Mom-"Guys...you have to start getting along...Stop the fighting..."


Cade-" Macey did it...I didn't..."


Mom-"I don't care who did what, but if it doesn't stop, all 3 of you will be getting in some serious trouble...Do you understand?"


Macey-" Mommy, you just don't get it...We ARE brothers and sisters...WE FIGHT..."


Thanks Macey...How I would have made it through the evening without her 8 year old insight....I sometimes wonder where her vast knowledge comes from.....and then I look in the mirror...=)

Just like anonymous said, they will be best friends. I used to fight with my Sisters (three of them) when we were younger, but now we are all the best of friends.
