After dinner, Lilly wanted her belt off so I took it off and she was playing with it in the kitchen and dining room while cleaned the kitchen up. Lauren tried to take it from her and I gave it right back to Lilly. Of course, Lauren started crying uncontrollably.
A little while later, Lilly walked over to her and tried to stop the crying by giving the belt to Lauren. Lauren had herself draped across one of the dining room chairs and shooed her away.
Lilly: Here, Lauren.
Lauren: No. Not now, sweetie. I am still crying.
I thought that was fantastic. At least she is getting polite as she turns her sister away.
Also, earlier today, Lilly carried some bubbles into the living room insisting that we open them so she could play. I said, "No bubbles in the living room, Lilly." She walked them over to Keith who wasn't really paying attention to us. He opened them and started to blow a few bubbles at Lilly. Lauren stopped coloring, put her hands on her hips and said, "No bubbles in the living room, Daddy!"
