My step boys, that we have full time are 4 and 5. They are 1 yr and 12 days apart. Some days it's ok...other days I'm amazed I have any hair left cuz I just want to pull all of it out.
I must admit there have been times when DH would come home from work and I'd give him a light bonk on the head and ask him...you couldn't have waited a little longer between the two? lol Needless to say, neither of them were planned. They usually get along ok, they are very protective of each other, but they have been fighting with each other for the last year or so. They look like little midget wrestlers when they get going at each other. MIL says we shouldn't let them fight, but I figure as long as they aren't doing real damage to each other, they have to learn to deal with conflict between themselves. I won't always be able to watch them 24/7.
