The boys seem to be observing and taking in so much of what happens around them. Being the boisterous and rather naughty 2 yr olds that they are, they are always falling down or bumping into stuff and getting hurt. I usually put cold water or ice and follow it with a homoeopathic medicine called Arnica.
Yesterday Sid jumped onto my back and i got hurt. I grimaced and said ouch that hurts! The twins were immediately concerned and asked me where i was hurt. While Nishant gave me gentle little ‘magic kisses’ on my back, Sid came running with a bottle of Arnica that he managed to get from the medical box in my dressing table drawer. He told me to take the Arnica while he went to get some ice.
I was touched by the attention and impressed at how they were able to apply what they have seen me doing.
On a similar note, this morning with the baby was crying because Sid took away a a dump truck from him, Sid promptly went to the toy cupboard and pulled out a bunch of rattles and baby toys. He came back to the room with his arms laden with the toys and he placed them in front of his little brother, telling him to stop crying.
