not sure about this

I love the bond between my children. The twins have their own special bond, and then they love their little brother too. T2 loves Little Man as much as T1 does, but T1 has a special knack for younger children. He knows how to play with them, and lately he has learned he can teach them too.

It started innocently enough (doesn't it always?). T1 taught Bradley to give hugs when asked. Which is pretty neat, I always asked for kisses, but never hugs, I guess because I was already hugging them. We are all big huggers in our house, and T1 taught Little Man to do the same. But the day T1 figured out he taught Little Man something, well that must have been when the light switch went on.

I came home the other day to a nice loving home, I walked into the kitchen to set down my purse and had a 2 year old point his finger at me and say "Don't you dare!"

What? I am now being bossed by a 2 year old, as if coworkers and a hubby and 7 year olds are not enough. I was a little shocked, until T1 explained it to me. "Mommy, I taught him that!"

I'm not so sure about this.

  1. Great entry. Out of the mouths of babes. I'm shocked at some of the things that our 4 y.o. says to us. We need to watch what we say 24/7. Have a wonderful day and take care.

  2. Oh man... hilarious!! You were the comment ahead of me on today's Multiples and More post so thought I'd stop in and say "hi". Glad I did!

  3. Oh, just wait until he teaches him some REALLY fun stuff. LOL Been there, done that. But seriously, the teaching means there's bonding and where there's bonding-- it's a good thing.

    Thanks for dropping my by blog today!

  4. Oh man you are in trouble. That is too cute though. Kids pick up on stuff so fast.

  5. Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest! and day late :) I love this post my daughter is also 2 and being an only child doesn't excuse her from trying to be busy. she will scream to the top of her lungs until we come running. I usually don't give in but something it can be to cute to say no.


YIPEE! You decided to comment on me!
