After one night and one morning I have the swing of these girls already. I've heard of "honeymoon" periods, but I assure you, we haven't had one. They argue, fight, and whine just like any other kid would... but when I ask them to stop they usually listen, and they do really well with their 1-2-3 warnings and then time out. I guess I am cut out for kids with behavior issues, because I don't really take any crap from anyone. My husband is a softy enough for the two of us! They have him wrapped around his finger.
With that said, we have had a good morning so far. Two of the girls are here with me while the oldest made a Walmart run with my husband for some supplies. The girls have EXTREMELY curly hair, and I as I straightened mine this morning, they wanted me to do theirs. I did each while they played "telephone" and when I was doing the 6 yr olds, her sister asked what she was doing and she replied "My mom is straightening my hair". Obviously, they know I am not their mom, but it did make me feel like a welcome participant in their weekend. They are just too cute, and they know it too!
They are VERY curious as to why we don't have kids. The 5 yr old told me she hopes I have 7 babies. She said a boy and a boy and a girl etc... The 6 yr old told me she hopes I have 3 girls just like her mom because we have a real nice "place" (referring to our house). They're really funny and very bonded to each other.
More to come!
