A crazy and miraculous thing is happening at my house--Little M and Baby B are starting to occasionally sometimes play together nicely for a little brief while.
It's amazing. Moments of peace. It makes me so happy for so many reasons!
But, if I commend them for their kind and cooperative behavior, within about 5 seconds they're at each other's throats again.
So much for the whole "praise good behavior, ignore bad" philosophy. Nope. I'll have to appreciate in silence.
