Be More Specific

Today we were at a friend's house, and the boys were both trying to grab the same backhoe toy.  So, naturally, I tried to redirect them ("I see you both grabbing this toy.  You need to find another solution.") and then I took it away when they kept grabbing and hitting.

(Then they tried to grab and hit me.)

"Use your words," I said.

And they both screamed in unison, "I WANT IT!!!!"

  1. Well, they know what they want ;)
    Many years ago, my youngest brother kept turning the same card in a memory game. My mom gently suggested he try some other cards. "But I want the stag beetle!" In his next turn he actually found both stag beetles.
