Were you and Daddy Quarreling?

Last weekend, hubby and I were running some errands with the kids. The kids were acting as well behaved as children do while running ‘errands.’ It had been a long day and we were all a bit fried.

I’m not exactly sure what we started arguing about, but hubby and I were in a heated debate about something. Probably directions, the fasted route home or some similar, silly argument. However, in this case I guess we were starting to get a bit loud with each other. I wouldn’t say we were yelling, but it was a heated debate.

There was a break in the argument and sweet silence filled the car. The kids were just quiet—hmmm, maybe we should argue more often! I digress.

Little Man pipes up from the ‘way back’ with: “Mommy?”

“Yes,” I said.

“Were you and daddy quarreling?”

Sometimes you just can’t help it…we laughed. Full on belly laughs. That big word innocently coming out of the mouth of a six year old settles an argument.

Finally, I found my voice, “yes, daddy and I were quarreling. We do that sometimes, but we always make up.”

Little Man, “guess you better say sorry and hug it out.”

— I guess he is learning a little something from his parents! 🙂

    Kids are a great reminder to stop arguing… One time Chad and I were in a heated debate and Z said, “mom, dad, calm down”, and when we said we were calm and kind of started arguing again, we heard from her little voice “I love you guys”. She is three years old and we don’t often argue in front of her, but she definitely stopped us that time. It was a little sad, but also humorous. 🙂

      Probably happens to all of us one time or another. I definitely try to see the humor in the situation. I also feel that if we argue in front of them sometimes, it isn’t a bad thing. The fact that you argue and move on to make up shows them that you can love someone, argue and make up — you work out your problems together. Definitely a good life lesson!

      Thanks for reading and following!
