Let me begin by saying that the titles "Big Sister" and "Little Brother" shall henceforth not refer to size.
This morning when Addison was sweetly sitting on the floor playing with her blocks and bully Carter came swooping in right over top of her with his walker (no doubt just to get closer to her, NOT to knock her over and run over her hand like he did). She has just begin to realize that the bullying that she has been dishing out for the past seven months (WHAT???) can now be returned by an equally sized sibling who is becoming increasingly more mobile.
She doesn't seem too nervous about it.
or does she?
I'm not sure your innocent act is fooling anyone, Miss Addison. But it was nice to see you apologize to your brother (for now).
Happy Wednesday to all of you.
I'm attempting to do some housecleaning today, but am having a hard time getting started (if you have any advice for me, PLEASE leave it on my facebook page.) The pick-ups and wipe downs I can do, but for some reason the badly needed deep cleaning is escaping me. I need inspiration. Oh, and pretty sure I have a post writing itself in my head about the constant need to do EVERYTHING a million times with two tiny people undoing it as fast as it's finished. This post is hysterically funny-and sarcastic. Well, it totally is in my head anyway. No doubt it will come out flat and whiny, but I'm getting a nice chuckle out of it envisioning it. For now? Enough time has been spent procrastinating. Time to CLEAN while the children serenely sleep, dreaming up this afternoon's portion of trouble.
Oh, and THANK you for sharing with me your experiences on a child with special needs and schedule. It really does sound like perhaps more of an individual preference with a slight hint of an age thing (as well as first-born?). And also- glad to know I'm not the only one who struggles in this area. Empathy sometimes is even better than chocolate. Thank you!
