Sibling Rivalry

My first experience with sibling rivalry as a parent has begun...on Wednesday Charlie started trying to take out his brother Sam. Evan has never displayed any jealousy or agression towards either of his brothers, so this is a new one for me. Charlie alternates between hugging Sam and slapping him. While grocery shopping on Sunday, I had the babies in the double stroller, and I put Charlie in the back seat in the hopes of keeping him from shoplifting things off the shelves. However, he just found a new way to be naughty. He discovered he had easy access to Sam poor bald head, and he let loose and just WHACKED him as hard as he could. Sam looked at me with such shock that anyone would not love him, it was heartbreaking. He burst into tears. I felt horrible. And Charlie is such a darn stinker. After you say no, or give him a time out, be looks at you out of the corner of his eye, AND DOES IT AGAIN!!! He is really going to give me a run for my money. I am really boping Sam is going to be my easy kid. Everybody gets at least one easy one, right?
