Too Good to be True?

This is a good age. I am enjoying these two kids of mine. Yes! Mine! Tyler (8) and Tarah (4). They play well together. He is starting to pick up after himself without me having to ask. She is sort of doing it. He can get himself snacks and his own water or drink. A little too well in that department. They can get to the cookies too. Tyler brushes his teeth without me having to ask. Big yeah. Tarah just follows along and does everything he does. So she brushes her teeth too. I get to use the bathroom all by myself. That has been a while. I am loving this. When is the other shoe going to drop? I think I will enjoy this while I am waiting for the other shoe. LOL

It's so nice to hear how well behaved kids can be when they want. My two Ethan 3 yrs 2 months and Ashleigh 21 months have moments like that too.
Most days I wana curl up in a hole and wonder what they hell I have done having kids and other days they are the sweetest best behaved kids you could ever wish to meet.
My 2 actually beg me to brush their teeth morning and night and recently I've only had to ask my son once to tidy his toys before he does it.
They do like to help themselves to snacks from the fridge and cupboard so I'm just waiting for the day where they are able to do it themselves without pulling everything out.
As for the playing together they are pretty good most of the time, although when they fight they are awful.

Good idea. Phrase them. I will tell them how proud I am of them. That should buy me more time with them being good. tee hee

Not too goo to be true. Your doing a great job, let them know how happy and proud you are they are being so autonomous and helpful. Enjoy this time, i bet it will get harder when they reach double digits:p
