I need to add to this post my theory of "Treats Only Bring Pain".
I know people do things like go out for ice cream "as a treat" or have a movie night "as a treat" or go to the carousel in the park "as a treat".
In my house my experience has been "No good treat goes unpunished". If I take them for ice cream - the next 5 days straight I have to listen to begging escalating to crying for ice cream every single night. DH gets coffee for him and me every morning - and started occasionally bringing back a pastry for the kids. Now - every morning - we are rewarded with crying throw on the floor fits on the days he doesn't bring a treat (which is most days) . . .
Once again - "Treats Only Bring Pain" . . . . . and THAT is annoying . . .

My kids are 5 years apart and they still argue. Surprisingly the almost 2yo is the aggressor. He tries to sit on his sister, whatever she has he takes away and screams at her. He throws things at her. But she also gives such nice big reactions too that it's hard for him not too do it. So I end up saying get off your sister 100 times a day. Dd's been locking herself in her room and playing barbies and polly pockets for hours a day to avoid him. He does play better with her in her room too. I really thought we'd avoid this. When dd is out here, she talks constantly, tells the same bad jokes over and over, yeah. I lover her to pieces and we do have fun together, but there is no denying that she does get on my nerves sometimes. Then again I'm with them both 24/7 literally. Oh wait, once every 7-10 days I go grocery shopping, that is my alone time.
