I caught the glimps of a quick conversation that I am SO glad I didn't miss. Yesterday we were having an okay day. A little bit of yelling ( on my part and Tyler's ) but it was a fairly normal day. NOt too crazy and not to wonderful. The kids don't play together. Kayla constantly tries to play with Tyler and he yells at her, rips things out of her hands and tells he NO! It's very frustrating and annoying. I constantly have to tell him he is NOT in charge and he can NOT tell Kayla no. It goes in one ear and out the other.
Yesterday however, they were playing together! Not only were they playing together but they were having SO much fun! Kayla was chasing Tyler and he'd squeal and shriek and say "No don't get me" and she'd growl and laugh while she chased him all over the living room. It was so nice to hear and see. Immidately after this it was nap time. We brushed teeth and then were sitting on Tyler's bed reading a story. Kayla crawled on the bed with us and kissed TYler on the arm and said, "You're my best friend" It melted my heart because no one provoked it and she is only TWO! It amazed me that she even understood what she was saying and doing. Then I said, "Tyler did you hear that? Kayla said you are her best friend." To which he replied. "awwwww Thank you Kayla. I love you." Then he paused and said, "Now you say that you love me" and she said, "I love you too Tyty!" It totally melted my heart. Then Tyler went even further to say. "Mom, I don't even care if she plays with all of my toys now!" I guess it melted his heart too.
Too bad he didn't remember that today because I can't get him to give her a break! Oh well....it was good the whole 5 minutes it lasted and gave me a wonderful memory it keep with me always.
