This month has been a very tough one for our siblings as they are having to learn how to share. This isn’t helped by the fact that is now in full big brother mode and worked up that he can easily wind Little E up by taking away or playing with some of her favorite toys.
It hasn’t been easy and has been a big contrast from the week that they enjoyed together at Center Parcs. At times I have felt like a referee and have been sick of the sound of my own nagging. But through of all of the noise and the crying that this life lesson has brought with it, we have witnessed our siblings bond still shining through.
The garden has been a massive hit with our siblings this month and they loved jumping in the paddling pool together. Little E actually cried when it was time to come in and say goodbye to the paddling pool.
The Little Tikes car has also been a massive hit but both children have had to learn about taking turns. This of course has been interesting but Ethan did learn how to play with Little E and enjoyed pushing her around the garden.
Of course there has been peace when they have both been interested in the iPad but Little E has been asking to use the iPad more and more this month which has caused some friction.
This really has been a different month in our siblings relationship which I’m sure is due to them both getting older. I’m hoping we will have mastered this sharing thing before the start of the summer holidays!
