I watched my two boys play and realized that I have a situation on my hands. I have a 2 1/2 year old boy, Braeden, who is pretty straight forward. What you see is mostly what you get. he is the kind of kid who gets mad at you and will punch you in the nose. No holds barred.
Then I have the 10 month old, Malachai, who seems so sweet and innocent. So angelic. Such a cherubic demeanor. Butter wouldn't melt in this kid's mouth. But.... he is sneaky. He is an instigator! An instigator, I say! He is the kind of kid who will grin at you and when your back is turned take you out with a tire iron! No shit! I watched him playing with B and he tackled him, knocked him over, blew raspberries on his belly, pulled his hair and bit his nose. When B started to fight back a little, M started to cry like he was hurt. B had barely touched him. If I had not seen the whole thing I would have assumed that B had hurt M. And punished B accordingly. Little M just grins up at me when I reprimand him. And I smile back cause he is just so damn cute. I have a feeling this little guy is going to be a handful!! Suggestions? How do you deal with such wildly different personalities?
Who me? I didn't do nothin'!
