Versus

Ladies and Gentlemen....

In the black corner... In the blue corner...

VS.


Bud "The Pincher" Big "The Hair Puller"

Age: 4 Age: 2
Height: 41 in. (52 %tile) Height: 36 in. (69 %tile)
Weight: 36.38 pounds (45 %tile) Weight: 34.17 pounds (94 %tile)
BMI: 15.21 (37 %tile) BMI: 18.54 (92 %tile)

The fight is on almost every day, most days more than once... some days, all day! Who will emerge victorious?!?

Truthfully, while they do fight, it has decreased considerably as of late. I don't know if it's something in the water at the new place or the fact that since Bud is now in school absence has made their hearts grow fonder... or maybe they finally realize how wise their mother is and all of the lectures finally sunk in. Whatever the reason, it doesn't really matter, I'll take it!

**Note: I noted that the nurse was maybe a little less than accurate with their height measurement, and when measured at home they were actually 41 1/2" and 37 in. respectively.

Awesome. Now it'll be fun to see when Big inevitably surpasses Bud in the height and definitely weight categories! Kind of like when I surpassed Alisa. All of the sudden she wanted to be friends :)

It's so good to have your comment, Sue! I love the part about Alisa suddenly wanting to be friends. ; )

I'd like to believe it's your motherly wisdom...

Exactly... why ask why? I know I feel that way, too. I just take whatever peace comes. I bet Bud's & Big's have to do with Bud going to preschool. They're probably appreciating each other a little more now that they're apart sometimes. And BTW, I went to leave a comment on your post about Bud going to preschool when I suddenly lost my internet connection. I agreed with what you said about it being okay that he gave an over-the-shoulder wave. I'm about to send my youngest to kindergarten and while it does pull at my heart strings, HE'S so happy and excited about it that I really can't be sad. It really is okay.
