sharing, negotiating and setting some rules


This was what the twins were doing not me…Last evening SId was busy whining as they both were playing on their trikes. Sid’s has a little crack because he is pretty rough with his stuff, while Nish’s trike looks absolutely fine. Anyway, a few minutes into the play, Sid started whining about his trike and wanted to Sit one the red one which belongs to his twin. Nish kept moving away with his trike everytime Sid came upto grab it and so Sid finally had a bit of a meltdown and started a mini tantrum. At this point Nish rolled along on his trike, got off and offered it to Sid. Sid promptly jumped onto it and was getting all set to pedal away when Nish held the front of the trike and stopped him. “This is my cycle OK??? You take a turn..take one round and then you have to give it back”.

I just watched the interaction and smiled


About myfourboysandme

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!
