To see full post go to: http://www.ourfamadventure.blogspot.com// It's been a challenge getting my boys to sit close enough to "like" one another. I know it hasn't been that long but I'd like to see some kind of progress here. I mean, they are so different....Personality, ethnicity, etc, but now brothers. And not really by choice either. But who "chooses" their siblings anyway?
We've had good moments, but mostly tolerence. Evan is feeling bumped out, and even somewhat depressed at times. Asher is now having a ball with his new, pain free (at the moment) life. You can just see his energy level rising every day. But you can also see that he knows his big brother isn't happy with him. Evan (4) is trying, but doesn't always understand why Asher (almost 3 but barely like a 2 year old in so many ways) responds like a baby, like throwing toys, or not responding at all because he doesn't know english. Evan has always been somewhat immature...and not always friendly social situations. He hates change.
How can we make this work for everyone? Any suggestions? I don't mean to sound like we are having major difficulties, just needing to facilitate "family". And stifling that green eyed monster!
