Samantha's Sisterly Love

Yesterday I was sitting on the floor feeding Callie. Samantha was jumping and crawling over me. It was a battle over mommy. I looked down at Callie as she peacefully ate, despite the bouncing caused by Samantha, when all ove a sudden she screamed. Quickly trying to assess the situation, I looked over at Samantha to find Callie's foot in Samantha's mouth. Yes, she had bit Callie's foot, and quite hard. (Though this is clearly not funny, I can't help but laugh when I think about Samantha so innocently looking up at me with Callie's foot in her mouth.) After removing Callie's foot from Samantha's jaws of death, I sternly told Samantha "No" and she began to cry as she laid her head on my leg. Such a sad story.

How cute! At the same time, how sad. Whenever Christopher gets into a biting stage (he still does...he bit Lucy's cheek at Mother's group-I saw the marks). I tell him that we don't bite and that if he needs something to chew on, he can have "this" (ie..a block, chew toy, etc). I guess in the case with Mother's Group I had to explain that we use our words when we are mad, instead of hitting or biting.

Well, I think Samantha's logic was good. Her tactic was highly effective. Well executed strategy. And really its quite funny. Certainly wasn't at the time I'm sure but it made me chuckle as I pictured it. Callie will be biting her back before we know it.
