Sibling Rivalry

Only two days into summer vacation and already the kids are at each other. WiseGuy walks by SmartyPants and smacks her in the back of the head, SmartyPants retaliates by grabbing his foot and tripping him and he responds by attempting to bite her all the while emitting an awful piercing shriek. That boy can call dogs from two miles away and communicate with dolphins, I swear it!
I've told them to go ahead and hurt each other because eventually they'll knock each other unconscious and I won't have to listen to them anymore. SmartyPants looked at me as if I had lost my marbles and WiseGuy had a twinkle in his eye. Of course, I retracted that statement and told them that if they kept it up I would tie the two of them together so they couldn't get away from one another.
They quickly dispersed.

Next time threaten to use Super Glue. Or Duct tape... that'll hurt coming off. Or pack them in a moving box, throw in a little newspaper, lettuce and poke some air holes. That should give you enough threats to help make it to moving day.
Good luck!

I say this:

"If I hear any more yelling I am coming down there. And if I come down there, I will spank you both. I don't care who started it, I'll finish it and you'll both be crying, I guarantee it!"

That buys a few minutes of silence :)
