Why Can't We All Just Get Along?

I am not sure what is going on with my kids. My son is 11 and my daughter is 6 and they fight like cats and dogs. Everything is a battle they can't even brush their teeth without arguing. I don't remember fighting with my brothers this much.

Today was especially rough it was the first day home from school for summer break. Let me say this if today was what summer is going to be like then I know two kids who are going to be spending a lot of time in their bedrooms.

I really need to find things for them to do that won't cause an argument. They even found a way to have a fight in the pool. Maybe they spend to much time together but it is just the three of us most of the time. Daddy is always away at work he has been gone for a week and a half this time.

I am crossing my fingers that it won't be this way the entire summer.

It might just be the heat that's making them cranky. I always fought with my sister when we were young, but now she's my best friend.

Girl when you find a solution please pass the secret along to me. That's all mine have done since they got on May 29th. I had considered home schooling, but after these last couple of weeks, there's not enough nerve medication in the world :)
