See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I was babysitting my nephew who is a month older then my ds. ( they turned 4 in Dec and Jan)
Apparently he decided it was his turn to do something and my son felt it was his turn so nephew sat on my son's head. By the blood marks on the sheets it is clear that my son was laying face down on the bed.
I heard yelling and that is when I went to check on them. My nephew said "he has some nose blood". *deep breath*
So I cleaned up my son and spoke to both of them to get the full story. I put my nephew in time out for a few minutes and then talk to him. I told him that he cannot hurt people when he is mad. That it is my job as mommy to make sure that all the kids I am watching are safe and if he hurts people that he can't come over anymore. Then I made him apologize to my son and help me take the sheet off the bed.
I mentioned it to my SIL when she came to get him but she was in hurry because she had other people with her that needed to get home. DH thinks that we should call her later and tell her again, in better detail.
I don't know that we should, seeing that I already told her. Would you?
( Then there are other behavior issues like I was making dinner but he didn't want what I was making so he tried going through my fridge) Told me to make a grilled cheese, I said no, so he told me to make him a pb&j. He complained loudly that I didn't have any good junk food snacks, etc. He is the only kid, in a house of six or seven adults, depending on what day it is.
