Actual Sharing Exhibited In This Household, News at Eleven

Q tends towards shyness in new groups and his cousin, Little Rugger, is more exhuberant. Play sessions have been heavily moderated, particularly after LR grabbed toys out of Q’s hands and Q whacked him on the head in return. We had a serious chat after I caught Q in an empty room taking practice swings with a ruler, preparing to defend his possessions. No hitting, little guy!

They’ve started really playing with each other in the last day or so. Giving each other toys, listening together to Granddad read a story, coloring pages side by side. All the parents are still on high alert, but I think the boys learned something new about being pals.

Wish us luck for our return trip tomorrow. In a fit of paranoia, I’m packing many extra diapers, in case we get trapped en route, like SwingDaddy and Q last weekend.

Cool! It's so neat when they finally start to get how to play together - really together.

Sharing, well um, some adults don't know how to share. It just takes practice and consistency.

Safe trip home!

Sharing is such a tough concept when you're little.

We're still working on that one.

So cute to see them playing side by side. :-)
