My oldest, Ryan (8) has always been in charge.
I figured that was his birthright. His dictated birth order status. His bossy destiny.
He has ruled his kingdom of brothers.
Without serious rebellion.
Rhett (3) has started his own country. In his world, he is in charge. Anyone who thinks otherwise is ordered out of his presence and told in no uncertain terms WHERE they need to go. Quickly...oh, and loudly. And if they don’t then there is war and tantrums.*
*Coincidentally? Rhett and his country are currently in their room due to his world colliding with others…
Reid (6) is Switzerland and just goes and takes a nap until the countries surrounding him settle into grumpy peace agreements.
Each country is battling over Switzerland’s land because their own borders aren’t budging.
Even if sent to a time-out.
Even if their DS is confiscated.
Even if their allowance is pilfered.
Thankfully to this point Switzerland has been napping through the unrest.
Switzerland’s mommy is considering purchasing Switzerland earplugs in an attempt at world peace.
As for the other countries?
Mommy might just purchase an extra pair of earplugs for herself.
