Anyone else have a toy hoarder at home? Not in the "I cant' walk though my house" sense of hoarding, but when playing with other kids. Mine are just awful right now. They spend most of their waking hours grabbing toys from each other and fighting about who has the most. It makes no difference what the toy is or if they actually want to USE the toy, they just want it so the other can't have it. Drives me crazy!!
They're in the tub right now and Pax has every toy pushed up against his side of the tub so Tia can't reach them and Tia has all the bubbles pushed to her side so he can't get to them. :rolleyes:
At music class this morning, all the kids were given scarves to wave around and dance with. 15 kids were running around having a ball with the scarves and my two were picking every one up they could find and guarding them with their lives. :rolleyes:
I'm hoping this is just a phase, they're super competitive for attention right now too, but I'm not really sure how to handle it. Usually I just end up taking away whatever the offending item is, but it's done little to prevent the competition from starting in the first place.
