Summer is Sibling Time: There Are Good Moments Too

This summer we are writing a series called “Summer Shorts” because let’s face it: in the throes of motherhood and summer, we may not have much time to read (or write!).☺️But mostly because we want to remember that no matter what happens in our summer days, the truth is that we want to rely on God to set our plans and to help us shift our attitude to focus on the positives...even when we have messy thinking or less than ideal circumstances (don’t worry–you’re not the only one!). #thetruthaboutsummer

So this was the end of our day… Me coming upstairs to Libby crying “I don’t like you!” and Benjamin laughing about it. 😫 #whendoesthisdayend?

At least she didn’t say, “I hate you”? 😂

Haha, I guess so! I read somewhere that summer time is “Sibling Time”. And that’s good… until they are just so sick of each other! I just want to scream!

I’ll scream with you, trust me!  Were they like this all day?

No, not really… If I really think back through the day, there were some GOOD sibling moments. Like the time he pretended to be her seatbelt on the golf cart ride. And when he helped her write her name. And when she made him a picture.

What sweet memories! She does like him! Maybe she even loves him!  😍

Yeah… I mean, everyone gets sick of people eventually when they’re together too much, so that’s really understandable. They’re just too little to know that they need alone time. I really want to treasure those good moments and not focus on the bad! #thetruthaboutsummer
