Cuddlebug and Bearhug were arguing over which video game to play. I suggested they take turns and play one now and the other one after that.
CB: (sighs) Ok, we can do one race on Monster Trucks.
BH: ok, then we're only doing one race on Mario Kart.
CB: (bigger sigh) Okaaaay! We can do ten races on Monster Trucks.
CB: But I'm NOT gonna have FUN.
Of course once they got started, he DID have fun ;).
And they even managed to switch back and forth between games without any further disputes.
Disagreements like this can dissolve into an all-out brawl in the blink of an eye around here, so I was *extremely* impressed that they both stayed calm, used their words, and found a compromise they could each live with. Yay!
