Trouble in Paradise

DD and DB are usually the BEST of friends. They play for hours together, day after day, with VERY few disagreements, but every great once in awhile a problem arises. It’s usually Desheng Darling (the oldest) who cries and comes to me. DD tries to avoid conflict and she tries to keep everybody “happy.” She just can’t stand it when DB tells her that she isn’t going to play with her anymore or if DB won’t share. On the other hand, Doodlebug couldn’t care less if DD played with her or not. She’s pretty content to just play by herself and sharing isn’t really a priority for her.

After having a great time outside on their scooters for P.E.,

The girls went upstairs to play with their Barbie dolls. That’s when I heard a little scuffle and DD’s tears began to flow.

This is what happens when sisters don’t share…Poor Barbie.

And this, unfortunately, is what “Time Out” looks like….Poor Doodlebug. I guess she’s going to have to move "sharing" up on her list of priorities.

She is so cute. How can you make such a sweet girl so sad.

Poor Baby! I'm sure that it must have been just an accident! Just remember, this too shall pass. I'll bet you and your big sister had a few incidents like this.
Love, Aunt Muhl
