It takes 5-10 minutes with each girl and it's one-on-one time. They get their blanket and snuggle and we talk while we do it. We also practice phonics, times tables and counting! If you ever see my girls without their hair done you'll know I'm super stressed or very sick!
One interesting thing about girls: they cry a lot. Have you noticed? Tanner has never been much of a cryer. I've also noticed that the crying gets quieter, but more intense as girls hit a certain age. 7th grade has been a big crying year. There is always drama at our house with friends and boys. (I think 6th and 7th grade were the worst years of my life. I wouldn't want to go back to them for ANYTHING! It hasn't been nearly as bad for my girls thankfully, but emotions are a roller coaster!) I'm sooooooo glad that I have a good relationship with my girls! We are very honest and open with each other. I wonder if next year will be better for one girl, but worse for the other! There really is such a huge transformation over just a few months. Akayla will go to 8th grade, but Corina will be in 7th grade. We'll see how it goes this year!
