Don’t mind me as I cry while I watch two sisters play together. Not rough house, not a 1 sided game of chase. Playing dolls together!
Courtney sat down by Alyssa’s dolls while Alyssa was across the room. As soon as Alyssa saw this she did what she usually does. Scream, “Courtney, NO!” Though it frustrates me that she shoos her away anytime she gets near her toys I get it. Alyssa’s toys are chewed on, broken, torn by Courtney. Nothing is safe.
This time I told Alyssa she should go teach Courtney how to play with her toys. Well…it turned into this beautiful moment of two sisters playing. The most beautiful part of all was watching the smiles on both of their faces as they enjoyed this moment together.
