They Really Do Love Each Other

Every now and then with all the daily activities, play dates and struggles with homework or in between having to separate the kids for one reason or another, I like to be reminded that they really do love each other.  I like to get proof of it whenever I get the chance.

Sometimes it doesn't always display itself like when he's playing piano just to annoy her more than he already was or the times when she's bossing him around (which happens daily).  

Sometimes it's subtle like when he helps her grow in some small way or when she wants to go with him to one of his friends' houses because she's secretly envious of his independence.

Sometimes it's very obvious like these situations...

Yep...they're stuck with each other - good thing they both like hats!
What do your kids do as a reminder that they really do love each other?



I'm linked up with Galit and Alison for their most wonderful linky Memories Captured, 
I hope you join us!

Love the pictures!!! I know it is always so nice when my kids show that they do really care for each other. I remember with my own sisters we could be killing each other one moment and very close the next! 40 odd years later, it's the same way! Thanks for a great piece and a fun glimpse into your family!

They're so cute together! (don't tell them I said that)

My kidz? I always asked them to MAKE greeting cards, rather than buy them. They continue to do it to this day...and 2 are in college!! Yay!!

Jessica said...

So cute! Love all the hats and silly faces.

Thanks Kathy! I guess it was the same with my own sister as well. More love now than then..

Thanks Alison - they are about the same amount apart as your boys..I'm just 7 years ahead of you!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

That's a great idea Desiree - so much more meaningful that way no matter how old they are..

CoffeeLovinMom said...

Thanks Jessica - they do have a love of hats...and contorted faces that I keep telling them might stick, they are too old to believe that anymore..

My kids always get along when it is time to get me a gift or when they are ganging up on me (it's aggravating enough when you tell one kid to stop playing the drums on the table but when you have another jump in pretending to play the guitar and the other the keyboards, it's maddening until you realize they are all getting along and then it is okay).

Janice said...

Oh my goodness this is too cute. I wish that someday my two girls will learn to get along as much! Um...at least on camera? LOL.

Christine said...

Oh my, they pictures are so cute!! The faces! Even though my boys are younger than your kids, I think that they realize that they are stuck with each other. For me, the sweetest is how my younger son looks for his older brother first thing in the morning and gets upset if he's not there in the room with him. We'll see how long that lasts!

My teenage daugher often rolls her eyes at her 12 year old brothers antics but the first weekend she had her new car, she decided to take him to lunch with her on the weekend. She really does love him. Noticed you were in Paris when I was in England/Scotland last week. Isn't it fun to go to another culture and get some perspective? Nice to meet you this week, and thanks for leaving a comment at my place.

Galit Breen said...

Yes, this.

Exactly this.

I strive for this with my own kids.

(This is lovely, you!)

CoffeeLovinMom said...

I so get that - good thing for those bittersweet moments!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

They will get there..sometimes - when they need to ;)

CoffeeLovinMom said...

Sweet moments missing big brother! She still wants to be that tag a long and is always in his business so it just progresses

CoffeeLovinMom said...

Thanks Shelly - that gives me hope for their future...I will have to check your blog again!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

Thanks Galit - you know I adore all these swooning memories -and you!!
