More school bus fun
A couple of mornings ago Faith and Shawn were back to their counting of school buses. But this time Faith was doing something quite different. After a mini-bus went by she would get excited (as usual) and say “school bus” and “yellow” but then she added “Shawn’s.” Which I thought was very nice of her. She was finally starting to share–abstractly, of course, the school buses. Haha.
Then a big-bus went by and she said “school bus” and “yellow” but this time she said “mine!” This went on for a few school buses. I realized Faith was “giving” the small buses to Shawn and the big ones to herself. She hadn’t learned to share but to be selfish.
Faith was divining up the school bus so that she got the bigger of the too. Meanwhile Shawn was saying “me too” every time Faith said “mine.” He wasn’t phased a bit.
Hopefully in the near future we can teach the kids to share and give up the best for each other. I know, we have a long road ahead.
