Yes!!!! All the time. I try to keep him occupied but he flits from one thing to the next constantly. He loves to take her pencils while she's writing and takes her seat when she gets up. He can be such a butt sometimes.

Ha! Sounds like the same stuff my younger kids do, especially the pencil stealing kind of things.

Nope. When mine were younger, I had a very strict rule about disrupting another person. Its just bad manners. Of course, I didn't have babies to contend with. Mine were old enough to be taught to leave each other alone.

And he has his own pencil too, but nooo, he has to take hers.

 I am having a hard time getting my 7 year old to focus and I took the younger 3 ( I have my niece) in the other room for kindergarten class.   I am about to go crazy.  Both she and my 6 year old refused to work this week.
