Back in mid-October, MS's preschool class took a field trip to a local pumpkin patch. YS and I were fortunate enough to join them for the fun. It included the standard fare: hay-ride out to the pumpkin patch, selecting individual pumpkins (pie pumpkins - now we'll see if I can scrape up time to learn how to use them for pie), a treat of cookies and yummy apple cider, and a perilous journey through the gift shop with two curious, greedy preschool boys.
These are the boys' two favorite friends. MS invited Evan (orange hood) and Andrea (pink hat) to his birthday party and YS has been obsessed with Andrea ever since. During the hay-ride, YS kept moving to sit closer to Andrea. She wanted to sit near her little girlfriend, Daelynn. Determined to get his way, he climbed over Andrea and plopped himself between Andrea and Daelynn. Daelynn dissolved into tears and Andrea tried to scoot as far away from YS as she could get. Yep, at age 2, he's already chasing the girls and making them cry.
Yesterday, MS was all bent out of shape because I brought YS along to pick him up from school. On Mondays and Fridays, when hubby is off work, I can leave YS home. MS felt that YS was stealing all his friends on the playground. You certainly don't have to teach a young child jealousy.
