Siblings in October


These two. They go from best buds to worst enemies faster than I can say whats happened now?'

It's half amusing, half incredibly frustrating, but also exactly how siblings are supposed to be. 

I've noticed this month that Archer's suddenly got to the stage where he notices when Lily's gone and misses her. He cries most mornings when we drop Lily off at her classroom because he knows he wont be seeing her until much later on and when it is time to collect her he chants 'sister sister sister' all the way to school. (and then within thirty seconds of being home they're back to fighting!)
I'm not sure what it is that's brought this on because for the first few weeks he was absolutely fine with dropping her at school. I'm guessing a development thing, he's suddenly putting two and two together and realising that his playmate is disappearing for big chunks of the day where as before he was pretty oblivious.

I've had this feeling over the past month or so that I'm struggling to put into words. It's a comfortable feeling. A settled one. A feeling that I'm right where I'm supposed to be. I think it's come from the realisation that the stage my two are at now, within themselves and their own development as well as their relationship with each other is exactly the stage I always pictured in my mind when I used to imagine giving Lily a younger sibling. The way they play with each other and interact, the way Lily protects and the way Archer follows, even the way they squabble constantly. It's exactly how I imagined. It's everything I ever wanted.
