Funny story

So little T man is a hitter. Were not quite sure how he learned this at such a young age but he is constantly hitting. He hits us when he's getting mad, or he simply walks up to his favorite target, E, and hits her on the head while she is sitting so pleasantly. How do you stop a 15 month old from hitting? That is definitely the question of the hour (or rather 24/7) at our home. While shopping for E's birthday, T found the baby dolls and started to pick one up to play with it, the next thing we know he is smacking it on the head and shaking it, a little too violently. Ben and I just looked at each other. Hum... let's just say we're a little nervous about having a little baby with him. Not to mention how jealous he is, and how he is still a mommy and daddy's boy only, well, mostly a daddy's boy. But still, life might be a little crazy in about a month! So, story number 2, I was sitting in the front room folding clothes and the kids were playing in the bonus room. And lo and behold, T kept hitting E. Course she was screaming and he kept hitting her. Then I heard D say to E, "I've got an idea, put this helmet on your head and he won't be able to hit you." I peeked in there, and sure enough E's got a Lego bucket on her head, while she is trying to play with her toys and T man is still trying to hit her. It was pretty funny! She proceeded to sit there for quite a while with her helmet on. That was sure nice of big brother to watch out for her. And as for little man, well... hopefully he grows out of this stage soon!

Too funny, look at that little terror! I swear it is the red head in hime and it is nice to have someone else's kids as the naughty ones! Too funny that he chooses Ella and too funny that they know they cant stop it so they just work around it - that is how Trey is with Toby!

If it gives you any peace of mind, I am hoping it is their age. Mia is biting and pinching! I swear we did not teach her those things. It is like her own little innate self-defence mechanism. She does it when Jay won't share. Next week will be her first week in nursery...
