Perfect Moment Monday: Playing Together

Every Monday Weebles Wobblog does a weekly post Called Perfect Moment Monday

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

There hasn't been many perfect moments of late, well not where Bip and Bop are concerned.... just as you think your going forward you take about five steps back.

Playing together is just imposable, I know all kids have there moments where they don't get on and cant play together but this is an everyday thing.

Its wearing thin and becoming a concern, the control of each other has grown mainly I think cause they know they cant control me, and in true RAD style they have to control something, so why not each other.
We  are working on this little problem, but needless to say, them being amicable with each other is far and few between.

There was one day this week where I suggested they  build something, they both love to build .... I supplied tape, scissors ( I was supervising the handling of the scissors), markers and other bits and bobs ... oh and a big cardboard box ..... they decided together to build a house for BOP's littlest pet shop toys .... there was one moment where they where quiet, no agruing no bickering, and where working together.

Working Together

I sat back and savored the moment of peace .....

Glad I did cause not some ten minutes later one of the toys had its head ripped off in anger ....Go figure.


  1. Sometimes a moment or two is enough to restore and rejuvinate. So glad you had a chance to savor this one.

  2. Isn't it great to have the perfect moment saved forever in a photo?

    I remember in the movie Mrs. Doubtfire Robin Williams says, "Don't you wish you could capture moments of your day on film, look at it and say - this is not my life?" It was such an unexpectedly random comment that it was hilarious; but it's also funny because it's true!

    Much better to capture the peaceful, wonderful moment forever on our cameras and our blogs.

  3. We take the moments of peace and calm when we get them, huh? I hope you get to have more of them!

  4. It's an amazing (and rare) thing when my boys get along and cooperate. It is truly perfect.

    Thanks for sharing your Perfect Moment.

  5. That definitely deserves mentioning.

  6. That's a real 'worth it' moment (you know, when you watch your kids and suddenly think "it's all worth it!") Bip and Bop are lucky to have you, Rachel. Not just because you work so patiently and kindly to make their world better, but because you notice it when it is.
