Holding His Own

Dear Daughter has a way of aggravating her brother. I catch her grabbing him and poking at him sometimes just to hear him whine and complain about it. Dear Son has figured out some ways to hold his own. I've caught him with his mouth open going for some skin--any skin--that his teeth can find on "Sissy." But a few days ago Dear Husband witnessed something new. "Sissy" was annoying "Bub," and apparently the Bubster had had enough. He went across the room and found his plastic toy bat and marched back across the room and whacked her one.

Guess he showed her!

I'm so glad to hear that I'm not the only one who has a big sister that loves to do things to get a response out of her little brother! Peter's whacked Emma a few good ones too. Then, when Emma's crying about the injustice of her little brother defending himself, he'll walk over and give her a hug. I guess it's true that "All's fair in love and war".

My two are constantly doing things like that to each other. One or both of them is consistently getting in trouble for hurting the other and (of course) the other one always started it ;-)
