  • We are in the process of making summer plans to entertain our children, his, mine and ours when out of nowhere we hear the girls arguing with each other. She is four and the other is one, both so different yet the same in so many ways and they were arguing over a doll, a doll they both want at the same time. Back and forth with the “Mine” and “No”, the one year doesn’t really understand the concept of sharing but the four year old does but wasn’t in the mood to share. In just a few minutes more it escalated to temper tantrums and tears. Just as I was about to say something. The first few notes of this recognized song is heard, they both stopped going back and forth with each other and ran to the living room. The doll and argument already forgotten.
    Now we are back to planning and creating a budget for this summer trip. After the show I thought okay now to explain once again the importance of sharing. The oldest got up and says to her little sister "lets go on a hike and find stuff to put in our backpack". I nudge my fiance "Look, they are going on a hike just like in the episode", he nods and smiled.
