Lessons in sharing

Last night, Mike and I were out running around trying to get a little more Christmas shopping done (we're almost there!) and noticed that we needed gas. Mike gets out to fill up the tank (at $1.61/gallon...thank you very much!) and I looked back at Elijah and noticed he was playing with one of his cars he just got. I said "Hey Eli, that's a cool car!" and proceeded to look at Isaac who was asleep. I then said to Isaac something along the lines of, "Poor baby, are you tired?" To which Elijah replied "Uh-uh mommy...I not share!!!!" We have a little more learning to do in the whole sharing department. Elijah is very protective of his cars, and Isaac loves playing with them too...well, gnawing on them we have frequent talks with Elijah about sharing, and apparently he gets it, he just doesn't want to do it.

Here they are...just look, don't touch.

Mine...all mine... (Please excuse Mike in the background shoveling the food in.)

And here's the attitude I normally get when I make him share. It's a work in all of us, I suppose.

I agree, we can all use a lesson in sharing... to be honest, I really don't like to share (but I will). BTW, I love Eli saying his alphabet! Too Cute!!! You're such a great mom!
