All I have to do is make it for another 3 years.

When I was 6 I think I had fun playing with my brother. That means I only have to make it another 3 years til the Orclette and the Miniorc start to have fun together.

At the moment, their day goes like this:

6 a.m.: Miniorc wakes up, needs food. I feed him then meander out to the living room because my awesome coffee maker has made my coffee for me (the preset option:).

6:10 a.m.: The Orclette wakes up, discovers that I'm not in the room with her and proceeds to wake the entire apartment building with her bellows. Oh, she also woke up the Miniorc who was sleeping peacefully in his bassinet.

6:30 a.m.: Miniorc is finally asleep again on my shoulder. The Orclette and I are watching t.v. Suddenly the Miniorc starts squirming and then starts crying. Turns out the Orclette got bored and started poking him with her cold fingers.

And so on and so forth. I know it'll get easier once Damm is here to run interference (14 days), but at the moment there are many many times that I wish I could ship the Orclette off to Grandma's house until Damm gets back.

Although, I remember my mom making that threat (shipping one off to Grandma's) when I was much older than 6. So maybe keeping both children alive and safe never gets easier.

So ... what happens when they turn 18 and are out of the house? Or much older than 18 and still living at the house? Will I still be running interference?

Sigh. Suddenly I feel so tired.

Wulfa I have the demon beasties 16,14,12,11. Now days I'm happy if there is little to no bloodshed when one gets going at the other. Although hopefully will be sending one off to college soon.

I've some good and less good news.

The good: my two orclettes, aged 4 years and 18 months respectively, already have fun playing together

The less good: it usually lasts only until the elder figures she just has to play with whatever her sister is holding right now or the younger one decides that poking out her sister's eyes is actually funnier.
