Such was the case on this particular morning that I took these photos. I had heard enough bickering to last me a week long! I finally separated them. One on the couch in the front room - the other on the couch in the office. I spat out a phrase that made me sound like a seasoned mother - one I am sure my own mother used on me when I was their age. "If you can't play nice with each other - than you both won't play at all." I squared my shoulders and told them they could sit there and think about how to place nice with each other. (To be perfectly honest, I really did not care what they thought about - so long as they were away from each other and being quiet!)
This is what I found about 5 minutes later. It made me laugh. They did not need to be away from each other as much as they needed a good nap! I let them indulge in the bliss of sleep for sometime. Not because I am nice. I just enjoyed the quiet for a little longer than a time out would have afforded me. :)
Trust your weekend finds you enjoying the little things in life. Even the time outs!
