Over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed a change in my kids. Elliot hasn’t suffered as much abuse at the hand of her jealous brother. In a few instances, Graham has actually alluded to the fact that he might be starting to like her.
They shared a bath where Elliot didn’t get pushed underwater.
Elliot got within two feet of Graham and didn’t get punched.
She TOUCHED his toy and he let her.
They worked together to prepare a meal. (Yes, that is Elmo/Cookie Monster in the microwave. Why do you ask?)
They enjoyed said meal together.
They watched Blues Clues while having a snack and destroying our carpet. Together. (That’s Graham’s birthday cake hat that one of us wears daily while we sing happy birthday to everything in sight)
I’m not sure if it’s a fluke or that Graham is just too sleep deprived to beat on his sister but I’ve been enjoying watching them together. I know we’re not out of the woods yet but I’m glad to have gotten a glimpse of the relationship they might have someday soon.
