Call it brotherly love or sibling rivalry: these two are really going to be the death of me.
They pick and pick and pick all day long. Eli tries to kiss Turner, but Turner misinterprets that as an invasion of space. Turner tries to hug Eli but nearly pops the poor kids head off so there's crying involved. Now there's hitting (mostly Eli walking by and slapping Turner on the head!), pushing and simple annoyance. I know some of it is typical toddler behavior, but some fights stem from their completely different personalities! Already...
Today was spent around the house; trying to unpack and ready for our next adventure (a trip to the Duurty Jerz). I had finally remembered to bring home this tent that Aunt Princess Katie gave Turner a few months ago so after nap time, Turner wanted me to put it up. Well, chaos ensued as Eli wanted to get up and walk around in it and Turner wanted to sit calmly. I put the tent away for a time out and after a few minutes the boys really did try to play together in it.
What happened next was the funniest thing I've seen in a very long time: they both stood up in the tent and tried to walk in opposite directions! It was straight out of a cartoon or movie where two people are in one of those horse suits and can't make the horse coordinate. I'm kicking myself for not turning the video camera on. The pictures do NO justice to what was going on in that tent!
