It does, however, make it interesting.
Lizzie was struggling with buckling herself into the car seat. I said to the boys as I was loading the groceries into the van, "One of you help your sister, please."
My motivation was to instill the idea of taking care of their sister and, ok, maybe I was also being a little lazy. :)
So, William hops up to help. He's a helpful kid.
Antwan hops to help. He's a helpful kid, as well. But, he's also competitive and he was going to make sure that he was the one to help Lizzie.
Next thing I know, they are tripping over each other to get to her and Antwan gets there first.
In a state of slight disbelief, I say, with a sigh, "Come on, guys, it's not a competition."
And, Antwan who is triumphantly buckling Lizzie into her car seat, says, without skipping a beat.....
Then poor William watched in confusion as I laughed hysterically. :)
|Everyone can relax, I got this.|
