I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream for Sharing!

My youngest Liam is 16 months old. We are entering into the toddler phase. With that toddler phase comes a whole new personality. Liam enjoys having Derrick over two days a week to play. They are both on the same schedule and enjoy each others company. This week though has presented many challenges for this Mom. Liam has started screaming if Derrick even comes near something of Liam's. He will scream and do the sign for "share." It's like he knows I am going to tell him to stop screaming and to share. Each time Liam does that, I remove Liam from the situation and say "We share" and move him to the couch for a little time-out or break. Landon was always the child who let everyone take things away from him and never complain. So, this is all new to me. Any advice out there?? I would love to have some! Am I doing this right? I find myself asking this question a lot.

In other news, Nate has been battling a bad migrane for a couple of days now. I made him a doctor's appointment tomorrow. Hopefully he can get a few answers. I can tell it is really bothering him.

Landon is starting gymnastics on Friday. I am so excited for him to start! It's going to be from 6-7 p.m. every Friday evening. I am excited for all that they are going to learn. I am only allowing one sport at a time as our schedule is non-stop. Landon's music teacher came out to my car after school today and told me how he was doing in music class. She told me that he LOVES it and is picking up on so many of the songs. It's very interactive so that is right up his alley. He usually sings and does the motions for some of the songs they have been doing on the way home from school daily. It's so fun to look in my rear view mirror and see him learning so much. Makes my heart happy.

  1. We have issues with the sharing as well. Unfortunately, I could use advice too!

    Our kids love music too! And I love watching them love music!
