Me again


I am close to breaking point at the moment with everything and the expectations.


Anyway


I left my two girls to play with some toys while I prepared dinner as we are out this afternoon. I come back in to witness toys strewn all over the floor which is one thing but the next worries me. Pickle is laying on her back with Munchkin standing straddling her head. Pickle is then forcing Munchkin to sit on her face!!! They are both laughing and carrying on like it is the most natural.thing in the world.


Should I be worried or am.I just too highly strung and overly emotional?

Think they’re probably being silly and it’s got out of hand.

Sorry you’re feeling rubbish. Any chance of a break?

Thank you PT.


Nope. No chance of a break

Welcome to my world. Face sitting, farting in the face and generally being sat on are a total riot in our house, apparently. Remind us how old they are, if under eight i’d say normal but worth a chat later. If over eight then a more serious chat about personal space.

Probably just high spirits. Mine are 12 and 17 and mostly ignore each other / argue but in the rare moments when they enjoy each other's company, it's often about physical contact - rolling on the floor, tickling each other etc. (Your post made me realise this, in fact!).


Not sure why, although both are quite tactile; dd1 is particularly prone to giving unsolicited hugs without any warning. I suppose it's a way of communicating they both find easy. The problem is dd1 is a good deal bigger and heavier and more likely to 'push her luck', so it does happen that laughter turns to tears quite readily, so I try to intervene usually.
