My poor little boy gets the short end of the stick quite often around here being the youngest but sometimes he even gets “beaten with the stick” too! (*this is a joke I nor anyone else “beats” my child with a “stick”!)
Lyra (who is now 4) has given Caelum a black eye, scraped toe and bloody nose all this week. She isn’t as violent as that sentence makes her seem but she is rather rough for a girl. I don’t mind it in that I think it’s making Caelum “tough” but I was quite bothered by the bloody nose… She definitely got in trouble for that one! It was interesting because as the phrase ‘bloody nose’ implies there is blood and quite a lot of it. Lyra was so fascinated by the blood and wanting to know what exactly happened to cause the blood and how we were going to fix it. I wonder if she will want to go into medicine like her mommy?!
Both my babies are small but Caelum will eventually catch up and even pass Lyra and she will be in for quite the surprise!
If you have older kids do you find it hard to keep them from being too rough with the small ones?
