“Don’t look at me!” My little girl.
Lately, my kids have been having a special kind of conflict during mealtimes. They sit across from each other at the table. For some mysterious reason, my daughter strongly objects to having her brother look at her. Not all the time; just some of the time.
She get’s all stubborn, pushes away from the table and screams, “Don’t look at me!”
My son likes to respond by making up songs with her name in it. That just makes her angrier. I try to avoid saying things like “SHUT UP” to the kids, but if ever there were a time for it, this would be it.
I’m tempted to put little walls up around each kid. Do you think there’s a market for this sort of toddler privacy wall? Maybe I could actually have a conversation at the dinner table with my husband for once.
