The Sibling Rivalry Between Jessa Duggar's Toddlers Is Exactly How You'd Expect It

Oh, that sibling rivalry can be something else, right? If you have more than one child, especially if they're closer in age, then you know what we're talking about. These little brothers and sisters love each other fiercely, but goodness do they butt heads! Jessa Duggar is in the thick of dealing with some brotherly battles right now.

Her sons Spurgeon and Henry are just 15 months apart (Spurgeon is 2, Henry is 1). Adding to that sibling struggle is the fact that the boys are both toddlers! So we imagine there are a lot of tears and arguments, but also so many hugs and kisses.

Jessa took to Instagram to share a story about a recent brotherly battle, and how she used her mama investigator skills to get to the bottom of things.

This little guy. ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™ He's a cutie alright, but don't let that fool ya! How can 2-year-olds be so cute and innocent, and yet such little stinkers at the same time? . Example: Earlier today, I heard ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ whimpering. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ: (I assumed ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ was trying to steal the favorite fire truck toy from ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป again, or was at least upset that it wasn't his turn to use it. They'd had this same dispute earlier in the day). "What's wrong?" I asked. ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป was already lovingly helping little brother toward Mommy, and replied, "Henry hit head." ๐Ÿ™Ž๐Ÿป: "Aw, poor baby." I didn't want to assume anything since I hadn't been a witness. ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ's kinda in that clumsy toddler stage, so he is always taking little tumbles or bumping into things. I picked him up, and he was perfectly content again! A while later, as I was nursing ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ before nap time, I brushed his sweaty hair back from his forehead, and that's when I got a glimpse of this: little red marks in a perfect circle, with a line down the middle. Immediately, I thought "Tail light." . Being the self-proclaimed toddler psychologist that I am, I explored the mind of my 2-year-old: ๐Ÿ’ญ I bet ya $50 that ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ was trying to steal the fire truck from ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป, and ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป took matters into his own hands and bonked ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ on the head to get him to relent. But when ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป saw ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ visibly upset, ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป felt bad about his choice to hit ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ, and hence switched to consoling and comforting mode. And at this moment, I appeared on the scene. Seems to make perfect sense, right? . I confiscated the evidence (aka: toy fire truck), and... it was a perfect match. ๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ#momdetective #boymom Come on now, yall-- who out there can relate? ๐Ÿ™ˆ . P.S. I've always heard it said, "What goes around, comes around." I'm am 100% sure that ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป is my offspring, because that was totally me in my toddler days. ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜† @jingervuolo, thank you for always loving me and being my BFF, even when I was THAT KID! ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿปโค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป This gives me confidence that my boys will continue to be best friends forever. ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ

Look at that little face! In her caption, Jessa wonders how 2-year-olds can be so sweet yet such little stinkers at the same time, and that face is definitely the face of a cute little stinker. Apparently, Spurgeon and Henry have a firetruck toy that they both love, but sharing has been something of an issue. Jessa says that she had stepped away from them for a moment, and heard whimpering come from little Henry. She figured it was because of the firetruck, and asked what was wrong.ย She noticed Spurgeon was already being a such a good big brother, and comforting little Henry. Spurgeon said Henry had hit his head, which is not unheard of! Toddlers aren't exactly steady on their feet, you know?

But Jessa had some questions. And when she was nursing little Henry a while later, she happened to notice a small red mark on his forehead. The shape and size wasย suspiciously similarย to a certain firetruck's taillight, so Jessa found the toy and compared, and wouldn't you know? A PERFECT MATCH. She figures Henry was trying to take the truck from his big brother, and big brother was having none of that, so he bonked him on the head with it. Sounds about right!

Jessa is one of 20 kids, so she has definitely had her share of sibling battles. In fact, in her Instagram post, she gives a loving shout-out to sister Jinger for putting up with her own toddler and kid shenanigans when they were younger! The bond between siblings is amazing, that's for sure.

And we can definitely appreciate it more once they're out of the bonking each other on the head with toys phase.
