On Friday night I was genuinely excited that Noah my 14 year old wanted to go to the store with us. He never wants to do anything with us. Then he proceeded to argue and bicker with his 11 year old brother the entire drive there over everything he said and then they managed to fight over who had to scoot over in the back seat. I would think by now these kinks have worked themselves out but noooo! I found myself wishing my husband and I had just gone by ourselves! I will not intervene, I've made it clear it is survival of the fittest! Good luck boys! Thanks for the read Katie! Thankful to know we are not in it alone!
