“Jenn, I don’t think oil and water is a good comparison. They’re more like gasoline and a match.”
So true. Even when they play together, it’s dangerous. There is no such thing as their playing “nicely” together. There is playing wildly where someone will get hurt. Or there is fighting where someone will get hurt. Ironically, that someone is usually the older one (Rachel). The other oddity is that when Rachel is out of the house for a few hours for whatever reason, Zach can be calm and happy and very pleasant. The instant (without exaggeration) he hears her step foot in the house, he’s having tantrums, freaking out, acting wild.
Gasoline and a match. Yes. That’s definitely my children.
