him & her.

every day :: it is a challenge to get him to obey & not push or hit his sister.
every day :: she takes his toy without knowing & screams when i try to give it back to him.
every day :: he struggles to share & she struggles to understand.
every day ::  i sip a diet coke around 3pm because it helps me make it to the end of the day just a little.
every day :: around 5pm, my anxiety levels skyrocket because one little boy is a little too wild and one little girl is a little too whiny.
every day :: i crawl into bed at the end of the day and all of the mistakes i've made are fresh on my mind.

every day :: he asks me if he can see her first in the morning.
every day :: he climbs on her crib and hugs her and kisses her.
every day :: her eyes light up & her squeals fill the room when he walks in.
every day :: he says, "hi sissygirl!" with so much joy in his little voice.
every day :: they become better friends.

every day :: it is worth it.
