Nora adores her baby sister Aubrey. Aubrey loves her big sister Nora. Today, they were sitting on the couch together with Nora sitting and Aubrey laying next to her with her feet near Nora's stomach. I guess with Aubrey's feet so close to Nora's head it just was too tempting for Nora. So, Nora took one of Aubrey's big toes and bit down hard.
Now, I don't feel this was done out of malice but out of love for Aubrey's big toe. Sometimes, I have had that overwhelming feeling of love for both my babes and just want to squeeze them so tight that it might be too tight for any normal human being to breath let alone a child to breath. Yet, I refrain from doing so because I know better.
Well, Nora was put in time out and we explained to her why we don't bite each other. Hopefully, she will know better next time and will be able to stand up to that overwhelming desire to show that love for her sister or her big toe in such a way.
If it hadn't of made my baby cry so hard it would have made me laugh.
