Anyone have a solution for a pinching twin?
Every single time she passes her brother she pinches him. Every single time she's mad at me she goes and find him and pinches him.
It's getting OLD!!!
The poor guy is pathetically defenseless. He won't touch her. Used to be he pinched her. He grew out of it. Now she pinches him and he neither defends himself nor knows how to avoid her. Once this week he managed to duck out of reach. He was quite proud of himself. As funny as that sounds, it's plain sad because she is ruthless and he's defenseless.
I can't encourage him to pinch her back.... that wouldn't be right, but I hate that he can't figure out how to protect himself from her.
On a brighter note she has pulled up her britches on the violin playing. After I clued the teacher in that she was being manipulated, and talked straight with the Missy, she made a complete turn around and learned a Christmas carol in one week. I've told her she can play it for church with her sisters sometime before Christmas. She's pleased as punch. I don't quite understand. She doesn't usually care what I say about anything.
If I were being real I'd tell you how I'm struggling to like this kiddo right now, but I'm too tired to go there at the moment.
