Sibling rivalry

Last night, we were changing Jack in the nursery and he wanted to lay in his crib. So I let him for a while. We talked about how that's where baby brother would sleep when he came home. Jack was quiet and didn't say much about it.

This morning, we were back in the nursery as I was trying to change Jack from his pajamas to his clothes and he was throwing a royal fit for no apparent reason. He was crying and thrashing and I could tell that something was really bothering him. I finally decided to step back from trying to get him changed and just figure out what was bothering him. I sat in the rocker and asked what was wrong and he just yelled, "I WANT TO WEAR MY PB'S!" I'm pretty sure he meant "PJ's."

So, we sat there a little longer while he calmed down and I asked him again. He finally said, "I don't want baby brother to steal my bed."

Hmmmm . . . I think we might have a long road ahead of us . . .
