My moment this week is something that would be incredibly ordinary for some – for me it was pretty extraordinary.
I’ve written about it before but we have experience terrible sibling rivalry since the birth of baby S – to say the least his big brother was not keen and although we have progressed to a level of acceptance, in general there is no love lost.
So imagine my surprise when i happened upon this scene.
I had just popped out of the room for a moment and when i returned i saw something incredibly special. Little F had got his guitar out, laid it on the floor and let Baby S press the buttons on the top end.
When he noticed me he said ‘look mummy he’s playing my guitar with me – he can play the guitar too – LOOK!’
It was so sweet to see them playing together for the first time – i would love to say it continued but it went back to ‘no get off Seth – that’s mine‘ five minutes later.
Small steps. Small steps.
This is what happened today at the supermarket. Mega tantrum as the result of enforced proximity to his dear bro. They actually had to touch! One step forwards two steps back….
