Remember how I said that Sam and I were referring to Baby Girl’s bitchiness with a code name? When those not rare times happen, we say she’s being a CeCe.
Apparently Little Man didn’t get the memo.
Baby Girl has been giving Little Man a hard time lately. She is very enthusiastic about sneaking up behind him to pull his hair, slapping him, and biting him. (Sometimes it’s in retaliation for something, sometimes it’s not.) And when he yells at her, she yells right back and does something else.
(We are correcting her, by the way. This little phase is new to us, as Little Man didn’t have an aggressive bone in his body at this age. Hopefully it passes soon.)
Earlier this afternoon, Little Man wanted to play house with Baby Girl in her new plastic house. She did not want to play with him and got in her coupe instead. This angered Little Man, so he held the door to her coupe closed for a few seconds, causing her to yell at him. He was told to cut it out and he did.
Baby Girl looked very pissed about the coupe incident, but didn’t do anything else at first. A few very quiet minutes later, she walked up behind Little Man, who was now sitting on his beanbag chair watching a TV show. She reached over and swiped at his face, much like this:
After we corrected her, Little Man said, “Can you believe she did that? She’s being a bitch.”
A CeCe, Little Man. A CeCe!
So…parents or other caregivers of small children — how did you deal with the hitting thing?
