Cooperation

Tucker and Aidan get along real well. They play together and very rarely run into any major disagreements. This has us hopeful that they will be an influence for good in one anther's lives. However, it seems to go both ways. One example:

Tucker is running around with a chair on his head and running into things. Aidan picks up his chair and begins to run around behind Tucker and runs into the same thing. Eventually, this turns into running into each other.

At one point, Tucker collides with Aidan, but the chair doesn't cushion them. Aidan starts crying. Here is our conversation:

Me: Tucker and Aidan, give me you chairs right now and go sit in time out.

Tucker: I don't want to.

Aidan: I don't want to.

Me: Give me the chairs, now!

Tucker: No

Aidan: No

Me: Your chairs are in time out.

Tucker: ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Aidan: (same decibel level, but 4 octaves lower) aaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Maybe one day Tucker will open a book and sit down to read and Aidan will copy that....

Ah dreams. :)
