On St. Patrick's Day we were out of town unexpectedly and I realized I hadn't brought anything green for me to wear. That morning I pointed out to my daughter that I wasn't wearing any green and told her she could pinch me. She gave me a soft little pinch that didn't hurt at all, and then went looking for other people not wearing green. It was funny and there were only nice pinches.
Later that morning her brother woke up from his nap and I pointed out that he wasn't wearing any green. My daughter's face lit up and she came over to give him a pinch. I was nursing him at the time so my hands were a little tied up and I couldn't stop the MEANEST PINCH EVER. My poor baby stopped nursing and cried, and I was in shock. After all her nice pinches she totally pinched the heck out of a baby's thigh. I guess maybe she's got some hidden aggression towards him. I couldn't even be mad at her since I basically invited her to do it.
Score another one for me and my fantastic parenting.
