Yep, the ability we have to use words makes our "fights" so much uglier and can leave wounds that last. I guess if they were in school they'd be picking on the other kids in their class just as they're picking on their "classmates" here at home. I think that's what bothers me most is that this is their siblings, you know, flesh and blood that they're supposed to LOVE!!!!
I need a good dose of my older children to give me hope that these younger ones will come to love each other well again. Looking forward to Thanksgiving break (at least the part that isn't the 26 hours we'll spend together in the van!)
