Gus *has* to be 1st at EVERYTHING. Emmet has begun to say "I like 2nd." Well does he have a choice?
If Emmet succeeds at anything 1st, Gus throws a total tantrum and shouts things like "Why is Emmet always 1st?!!? I WANT TO BE FIRST!!! EMMET CAN'T BE FIRST!!"
It can be about anything-running up the stairs, going pee, getting dressed (and not just in general-EVERY INDIVIDUAL PIECE OF CLOTHING!), being served, pouring juice, drinking juice, finishing juice, getting in the van, having car seats buckled, having car seats unbuckled, getting out of the van, changing the channel, getting the mail, returning home with the mail, etc.
Gus actually expects Emmet to ride slowly so he can get to the mail box 1st, then Emmet has to wait for Gus to ride past him on the way home so Gus can get home 1st. If Emmet doesn't cooperate Gus flies into a rage, screaming, thowing himself on the ground, shouting mean things like "I don't love you anymore!" and even bit him once for "not listening"!
I'm sure it sounds petty, but it's getting to the ridiculous point and I'm not sure how to handle it anymore....
