If you have two or more children, they will most likely have spent more uninterrupted time with their siblings than ever before over the past few months in lockdown. I’ve found it really special to watch how the bond between the twiglets has grown and strengthened during this time.
But what’s been really noticeable this week is the fact that these two have started getting right on each other’s t*ts! 🙁
They were getting on so well…
Up until now, their relationship has been blossoming during lockdown and it’s been so lovely to see. Of course they bicker and fight sometimes, but generally they have played together so nicely.
I’ve also noticed with all this time together that their play has become so much more imaginative than it used to be. H has always struggled a bit with imaginative play as he tends to be very literal and concrete in his thinking. Previously C would just play imaginative games by herself or with me or Twiglet Daddy. But since being on lockdown and spending so much time together, H has really been engaging in role play games with C, which is just amazing.
Now they’re getting on each other’s nerves
This week the twigs have been arguing so much more though. They just seem to be really irritating the hell out of each other! And both have been being quite intolerant and losing their tempers really quickly.
I think maybe they’re really starting to miss interaction from other children now. When you think of the amount of different interactions they would have been having each day at school, to go from that to just being with each other all day every day, it’s no wonder really!
Lucky to have each other
We’re still not sure whether we’re sending the twiglets back to school or not. At their school, Reception aren’t starting back until 22nd June so we have a little more time to make a final decision. At the moment, we’re leaning towards not sending them, for various reasons, but we’ll see!
And if the twigs don’t go, they will have to put up with just each other for a while longer! They’re doing so well though considering, and I’m really proud of them. I hope they’ll look back on this time with fond memories. They really are so lucky to have each other!
I chose these photos for Living Arrows this week as I think they sum up the twigs’ relationship pretty well – loving and silly! Obviously without the bickering and fighting but we don’t generally photograph those moments!
How have your littles been getting on with their siblings in lockdown?
Thanks for reading!
Til next time,
