Hugging is Nice
Friday, February 22, 2013
As his little brother is now a serious security threat to just about every toy in his domain, Luke has had several conversations with us (if that's what you want to call them) about behaviors that are not nice. These behaviors include hitting, biting, pushing, scratching, and sitting on, to name a few. The list continues to grow as Luke uses his imagination to think of new ways to force Judah into submission. Now sometimes he will ask us before he acts, like, "Is kicking nice?" or, "Is pulling nice?", or, the other day, "Is burning nice?".......... oh my. It's a miracle that second children ever make it to their first birthdays.
On the flip side of this, there are two behaviors that Luke says are nice. We quite agree, as they are hugging and kissing! It's sweet, because Luke gives so many hugs, kisses, and "I love you"s to Judah throughout the day that it almost makes up for his not-nice acts of cruelty. Almost. But not quite.
Still, I don't usually take pictures of my kids hurting each other, so all you get to see is the cute stuff. You'll just have to take my word for it.
