While I get the overexcited part to a point, it is when I see him deliberately give her a leg-sweep that irritates me to no end. There is no way that is going to end well for her. Other than the fact that she will likely be the toughest girl on the block, she will also be the one with the most scars on her face! We have tried a little of everything - time outs (in which she will join him because she adores him); send him to his room (where she goes, opens the door and hangs out); taking toys, etc. Nothing has stuck, or at least not so far. Here was the scenerio yesterday. Let's see how this pans out.
I wanted to run to Target after picking the K-Man up from preschool. I was having a serious case of sag-ass, but that is a whole other post :). I thought I would try a couple pair of pants on before heading on to the things the kids wanted to see. We head to the dressing room, where they play and share pretzels. They both want to look into the 3 foot+ wide mirror, when it becomes a pushing and shoving match. Obviously these 2 small bodies couldn't coexist in a 3 foot space. Oh wait! They aren't even that wide put together side-by-side! The last shove results in Mini-Me with her face into a disgusting dirty wall and me hissing at them. I hang all the pants back up, take them to attendant. Empty the cart of anything they might have accummulated in the 2 minute walk from the front door of store, put Mini-Me in the front and K-Man in the back, and literally leave the store.
