I don’t blame them. We had a winter/spring that seemed to last forever, so I appreciated their zest for wanting to make the most of our warm weather. I enjoy listening to their squeals of happiness, their giggles of joy…signs that our kids are happy and are playing well together. Toby is napping in the shaded grassy area. The birds are chirping, because they too are enjoying the beautiful afternoon! It is a pleasant scene and I am so taking it all in.
And then a moment later someone is screaming bloody murder because their brother/sister did something to them they didn’t like. Depending on the severity of the crime, I will either step in and address the offense, or pretend like I didn’t see anything and in return the three of them typically work it out. The tides of frustration have subsided and the birds are chirping again.Jack is notorious for finding it so, so funny when he soaks other people, but when he gets soaked he screams in frustration and is all colors of mad.
