These girls have all these toys and they want to play with the one the other has! I can hear them in their room saying, "That's MINE!" Raychel-"That's mine, Oceana!" Oceana-"No, MIIINE!" Oh, brother! I have to have two of everything!
When we go anywhere or have someone over for a play date, they will take all their toys squeeze on to them for dear life and its like they don't even enjoy the playdate with even their dearest of friends or cousins. They are always arguing that, that's theirs! It's embarrassing...people probably think we hardly ever discipline our girls!
Well...now...they are doing a lot better. Raychel knows if she can't share then no one is playing with it or she will get a time-out. Raychel dislikes time-outs! Oceana is a little tough because she is still little to understand a whole lot, but we try to explain it to her the best we can, and sometimes she will also get little time-outs in her crib.
All in all I think most toddlers go through this stage and it's just a phase, but this is a time to show/teach them about being nice to others, sharing, and taking turns. I want my girls to have a heart for people and make people happy and by doing so they will feel rewarded. I want them to love people and see the good in everyone, because God created us and He loves each and everyone of us.
