It is hot outside and the boys are thirsty. I fill up two water bottles.
One of them has a red spout. One of them has a blue spout.
They have other water bottles that are “theirs” but these are just random bottles that we have in the cupboard. Both of them have drank out of both of these bottles before, they aren’t even new.
Simultaneously, they complain that they want the color that the other one has.
According to parenting experts on sibling rivalry, this is because of some deep insecurity that I favor their sibling. So you know, it is my fault and stuff. They each must think that the other kid has soda or juice in their cup while they only have water and poison in theirs.
But since they both believe this, it is super convenient!
They can just switch!
I switch them and walk away.
(They did eventually figure it out peacefully amongst themselves. All it required was for me to walk away. Amazing how well that works, isn’t it?)
