Cabin Fever and Fighting Twins
With the bitter cold, the kids have been inside most of the recent days. That, combined with the hiatus of activities due to the holidays, has made us very home bound this week. Not good for energetic little people. They've begun making up very rough games like bed gymnastics and pillow jumping piles. Jumping down three or four stairs has also been popular. The twins are starting to get to each other and have been bickering quite a lot. It has led to wrestling over toys, complete with the occasional hair pull or scratch. It is exasperating for me, who grew up without brothers and sisters to fight with. I'm hoping the wildness dissolves next week with the the resumption of our activities and the introduction of two new ones - open gym at the gymnastics school, and ice skating lessons.
