My Mama!

Sibling rivalry has arrived chez moi. Gemma pushes Oona away and says "My Mama!" and Oona starts crying. It's wonderful to be so loved - so much so that they're fighting over me! At least that's what I keep telling myself as I'm pulling my hair out in frustration. Can't I go ten minutes without hearing a baby cry? Please?

Gemma is getting to the very bossy stage. My goodness! She constantly tells Oona what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. And if Oona doesn't comply, she gets hit on the head or pushed over. One of these days, Oona will be big enough to get even. "Getting even never works." Isn't it great when you start quoting your parents? That was one from my Dad.


  1. You know what they say...don't get even, get ahead :)Won't it be wonderful to see wrestlemania round two? I'm sure once the boys are off to college Gemma and Oona will be old enough to throw full punches at one another.

  2. maybe Gemma needs some only mommy time? I know Abby really needs it, and will be cruel to the animals and Norah, not listen, whine, cry etc. if she feels like we haven't had our time together in a day. Hang in there :) and remember; knitting can solve everything :) lol
