I make them write lists about the ten things they love about each other:
He is cool
He is good at dribbling with his left hand
He is good at shooting the basketball
He is good at soccer (spelled soccor)
He is a fast runner
He is good at Monopoly (spelled Monopoley)
He is funny
He is quick on ideas
He is Special
Thank You Susie, I will try this when my boys are older.
I love that list- very profound! 😀
OOhhh, we’ve got a spot open for a good basketball player who can shoot good, and dribble with his left hand. 🙂
Smart mom. You are teaching them to think in the process.
sohow come in the bookmarks, it comes out ‘susiej’
‘Susiej’ – like tha banner?
Very creative – I wish I would have thought of that!
My kids are 3 1/2 years apart – boy and a girl and let me tell you they fight like cats and dogs. It’s hard more now than ever because he’s 17 and she is 14 and they have absolutely nothing in common.
Hey, that’s a good thing for all of us to do! I must remember that the next time Mr. Sparkle and I get in a little to-do!
Perfect timing for summer, the time when sibling love abounds…
Ooh, what a great idea. I’m all over it. I’ll let you know if it works chez Slouching Mom.
Oh what a great idea! I used to make mine hold hands for a few minutes…
Yep, I do this too and make them read it to each other when they are through followed by a great big hug and an I love you.
hmmmm, my three year old still can’t write but i’ll try this one. thanks for sharing Susie.
I love this idea — must remember it when raising my own kids!
