So, I made a list.
Not like a list of chores or items from the grocery store.
More like my kids arguing in the backseat during a family trip to Michigan several years ago made the list after I photographed the event and posted it, you guessed it, on social media.
But what made the photo more relatable to parents everywhere was the fact that I was smack-dab right in the middle of their fight over what appears to be a water bottle. Then again, they could have been fighting over airspace and it still wouldn’t have mattered because they’d be fighting.
And, I was still wedged in the middle.
I was trying to keep the peace between the twins for the three-hour drive into Michigan, but honestly, they fight nearly anytime they sit next to each other in any setting.
Legs touch, knees hit or elbows cross the invisible “space-line.” We’ve tried staggering the kids inside our vehicles, but they always end up within “touching space” so it doesn’t matter anyways.
Naturally, we’d have to bust the divider button so they couldn’t use it because if they knew how to use the button it would become a game of up/down; up/down; up/down, etc. for hours on end.
Alas, we are not rich and a limo would not fit inside our garage anyways. Besides, no one has time to shop-vac the back of a limo – I can hardly keep up with the house they destroy!
