Day 29: Crying Photo
These last few days I am veering off from my original plans. I had wanted to take a jumping picture, but every picture that I took of BB jumping turned out all blurry, so I had to change my plans. I decided to add in these two pictures. They represented my day (and most days) yesterday. On Tuesdays and Thursdays BB does not go to preschool. Since he is home all day that makes it a tough one for all of us. BB doesn't want LB touching his toys or even getting near them. Just the other day LB was just crawling around and not even close to one of BB's toys, but BB was convinced that LB wanted to play with it, so he ran over and started yelling at him :( Anyway, most Tuesdays and Thursdays it is me "yelling" at BB to stop hurting his brother, stop taking toys away, stop yelling at his brother...you get the idea. BB makes LB cry and then once LB cries and I go to comfort him BB starts to cry. It really is such a viscous cycle. I can't remember exactly what was going on here, but LB was holding onto the table and crying (you can't tell that he is crying) and BB was on the ground crying. All I could do at that point was get out my camera and start taking pictures! It actually helped in calming BB down, which was nice. I am hoping that Thursday will be a better day and I think that it will because we have a playdate in the morning and then my sister in-law is in town and she is really good with entertaining the boys and keeping BB out of trouble!
