The stasis was before I got home and:
1)Thing One apparently got rowdy in the bath, so K. angrily said, “I’m leaving” and left the two children alone there. Thing One promptly slipped and fell. In the bath. I ran to help him. Thing Two slipped and fell while I was picking up Thing One.
2)Thing One continued to hit, and hit K. on the leg in the hall. K. yelled loudly to never do that and then shoved Thing One, by one arm, roughly toward his room.
Sigh. Thing One was crying and hitting in his chair, and I had just had a talk with him about how NOBODY is allowed to yell or be rough in our house. And he’d been doing so much better.
