2 of a Kind

So a post on the scrapbooking board got me thinking. You'd think that 2 brothers aged 13 years apart, would probably have very little to do together. WRONG! They have one thing. FIGHT. My goodness. I think if they were closer in age, I would have lost all my hair already. God knew exactly what he was doing when he gave me 2 boys so far apart. He'd know I'd kill myself otherwise. No just kidding (you know that right?)

Geez.... We go to the market and it's fight fight fight. Victor will touch Mateo's shirt. And of course Mateo doesn't like it.
"Mooooooommmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, Victor touched me!"
"Mateo you're a brat!"
"Mooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, Victor called me a brat!!!" "Mateo be quiet"
"Mooooommmmmeeeeeeeeeeeeee, Victor told me to be quiet.
"What, I didn't do anything. He's just a brat"
"Moooooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, Victor called me a BRAT!"

At home, it ain't no different. Constant nagging and fighting.

But you know what, it makes my heart swell... I love that they are as close to fight. Because my biggest fear was that they would be strangers and have nothing in common. I took some pictures last Saturday morning. I was in the kitchen and Victor and Mateo were in my room watching TV. When I walked in, they were laying together. Victor cradling Mateo in his arms and Mateo's arms wrapped around his brother, cracking up watching Sponge Bob. I ran to get my camera. My boys..My Saturdays.
