Watching the boys play can be quite a show - sometimes a comedy, other times a horror flick! Tyler loves to play with ANYTHING Parker has in his hands - must be better than what he's playing with, right? He is already notorious for stealing brother's toys, crawling over him to get to his ever-so-important destination, pulling his long, beautiful curls, or even walking ON him. Yes, there is no more interesting sight than coming into a room and seeing Tyler standing/walking on top of Parker! What the...? Now Parker is not completely angelic in this scenario, he too has his moments of thievery and bully, but more often than not I can rely on Tyler to come through in this area.
So...if being near each other causes such grief, wouldn't they stay away? ARE YOU KIDDING? John and I are thrilled and amazed at the way the boys stick together. Even through all of the battles, they choose each other. The other day I called for Parker to come give me a hug, on the other side of him was Tyler, luring him in with cars and laughter. Who did Parker go to - yep, you guessed it, he went to his brother! Now mommy was shocked, but understood. Parker didn't need a kiss and hug at that moment, he needed his play buddy, his brother...and I LOVE that!
Brothers just hanging out!
