This little girl doesn't know how to share!
This morning we had a fun playdate with some of the girls that sit at my table at MOPS. One of the girls brought her son and her nephew who are both the same age as Bridget (their birthdays are all actually within two weeks of each other). Bridget found new love for toys that she normally doesn't even know exist. She was heartbroken over letting someone else play with the jack-in-the-box. She yelled and screamed whenever she saw another baby playing with a stroller (even though there are two of them!). But I think the final straw for her was seeing someone else play with her beloved bead necklace. That might have just pushed her over the edge.
It got me thinking. The boys have never had any real problems sharing. Not to say they don't ever struggle, but sharing or taking turns with toys has never really been an issue for either one of them. Bridget, on the other hand, has never been asked to share. Whenever she wants something that one of the boys has, she points at it and they give it to her! They dote on her and would never dream of denying her anything. Seems like maybe we're raising a little princess here--but certainly not on purpose. I'm just not sure how I'm going to tell the boys that they can't give in to their little sister any more!
