I have been such a bad blogger! My excuse is that I'm busy. But that's only an excuse since I do find time to do other things.

The girls turned 2!! Thanks for the birthday wishes! I still can't believe they are 2 already! They are definitely acting like two year olds as well. Plenty of tantrums and asserting independence here. I am glad I have been teaching awhile because I do think it helps me understand some of their behavior better. Of course, some behaviors, well, I just have no clue. For example, M. has been hitting, pushing, and biting S. for no reason. I attended a positive discipline workshop and they talked about how if they are fighting in front of you, it is for attention, and they went into detail about this. However, they did not talk about when they wait until you are not looking or not in the room and start fighting! I still suspect it is for attention, but it is odd how she waits until I am not looking. And frustrating.

The birthday party was fun. We had a Hello Kitty theme. I will post some pics later.

Belated Birthday Wishes to your girls!
Many congratulations to you on getting this far :-)
Hope you get some help with the fighting thing. It happened between my children (siblings, not twins) and the best thing we discovered was to love them all even harder. Tell them not to do those things - and make it sound serious - and then hug them and tell them you will always love them. Somehow, us letting them know that we loved them very much got them through it.
