Upon hearing an angry or pain-induced ear splitting scream, it is usually followed by one of two sound groups.
a) more ear splitting screams, growling, and thumping noises as the two go at it like bats out of h... well, you know.
b) lots of shushing and "I'm sorry, I'm sorrys", followed by promises of sugary or intrinsic gifts if they will "not tell mom" and "stop crying".
And occasionally, something else entirely happens.
I walked in upon this the other day.
I asked Jacob what in the world was going on. He explained that Alayna had accidentally hurt Claira so they were trying to make her feel better.
Clearly it was working.
As she sat there in all her cushioned glory, Jacob and Alayna kept faithfully bringing her toys, books, and snacks.
And she milked it for all it was worth. She's a smart cookie.
Totally gets it from me.
Man, I'm feeling a little jealous! After all I endured to bring them into the world, don't you think I deserve a turn on the couch surrounded by comforts while the kids bring me books and snacks?
Ah well. Guess I can always live the life vicariously.
