The Dubsmash Craze

Do your kids always get along? Be honest. And if you're still answering 'yes', then we can't be friends. Mine are the kids that are pushing each other's buttons within 2 minutes of being awake. As soon as they are in the car, there's arguing and mocking before we even leave the school parking lot. I'm pretty sure the boys would wrestle in their sleep if they shared a bed.

So when they play together, or work together, or stand up for each other, or ask to sleep in each other's room, it warms this momma's heart.

The other night, they were working together to avoid bedtime. The boys wanted to stay up and watch the Football Championship. The girls wanted to stay up because the boys were up. The parents wanted silence and peace. That's when it happened. It was almost as if they realized the power they had together. They each pulled out their iPods and asked to show "just one thing" to me.

I started laughing.

"Shane have you seen these?"

It worked. We spent almost an hour laughing and trying to get Daddy to tape one too.

Yes, Dubsmash, the you and the kids won that round!
