sibling rivalry


I had not seen much sibling rivalry between the twins so far. I guess they were just used to sharing…there was no option..right from the uterus onwards they have been sharing space, toys, time and attention.  Sure there are fights over who gets to sit in which chair and who gets to wear the read crocs but the fights for my attention were much fewer. Now, with the new baby, things have suddenly changed. He has figured out that unless he is loud and overtly grabs my attention he is probably not going to get it as much as he would want. So the minute i walk into the room where the three of them are playing NB zips over to me and asks to be picked up. He squeals loudly to make his point clear (very clear). Seeing this, the other two have also started vying for my attention and get upset if i pick up someone other than them. It’s a bit of a no win situation for me at the moment because no matter who i pick up, someone is always a little upset. The little one especially gets upset if i get one of the twins before picking him up.

Hopefully, like the peeing in tea cups and saying ‘shut up’ to everyone and everything around, this too shall pass!

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
