Staying in the Lewis household has really expanded Rachel's vocabulary. This morning Sam and Rachel followed me into the kitchen, squabbling, as usual. They really are good friends and like to play with each other--it's just that Rachel is an oldest/only child and is used to getting her own way and Sam is the youngest/baby child and is used to his older siblings giving him his own way. Since they both always want their own way they run into a lot of conflicts.
Oh, and Rachel thinks she has to hold/touch Sam all the time and he's not too fond of constant hugging. It's kind of nice for me because she doesn't follow me around all day long holding onto my legs. Instead she follows Sam around.
Anyway, they ran into the kitchen yelling and screaming.
"Achel! Push!" Sam tattled.
As soon as he said this Rachel shot back, "Sam! Hit! Hit!"
She hit herself just to make sure I knew for sure she meant to say hit.
Isn't it great how educational family living is? Rachel has learned how to tattletale and to say hit all in 4 days. Amazing!
