Stop fighting!

It has been one of those days. No matter what I try to do, the kids are fighting every 10 minutes. I tried time outs, time apart, time together, getting out of the house...all to no avail. Miles finally settled in on my bed to watch an episode of Mickey Mouse when the girls started screaming, again. So I came downstairs to see what the problem was. I told Morgan to tell me the truth, which seems to be all it takes to get her to actually tell me truth, about why they were fighting.
"Well, Mom, I was on the floor cooking 2000 bones for puppy purse and then I got up and walked around to see all the animals at the fair, like the bunny. I was walking around and Elle wasn't, she was just up on your table!"

I couldn't even muster up a little bit of anger to scold Elle for being up on the table.

She was cooking bones on our carpet? What was she thinking?

Wow, she TOTALLY lost me! Good luck on that one, Mama.

(and send any tips on sibling peace-making my way!!)
