This evening I am grateful my girls play so well together. The older girls ran off the bus at 3:15, and they have been playing together ever since. No one has asked to turn the television on or watch an iPad. No one has started any fights (which happens more often than not). They've been doctors, makeup artists, teachers, students, athletes and a variety of animals in the past 3 hours, and it has, as it always is, been a joy to listen to. I love listening to them giggle and whisper secrets to each other.
Every day isn't perfect. There are days they don't get along, but for the most part, they are each other's closest friend and confidant. They are mindful of each other and really try to do whatever is necessary that the other person might be happy. I love them and am glad I have been able to foster such strong bonds between them.
