However, I'd like to address something that has been on my mind. During naptime today, I do understand that you were having a hard time getting to sleep. And I am aware that it was simply a matter of caring so very much about those around you that brought about your actions today, but I truly think this is something we should discuss.
You see, Grant was actually sleeping. I know that to you, being the tender age of two, may not know the difference between a child who is sleeping and a child who needs life-support, so it could be very easy to see why you thought he needed those sudden chest compressions. On a side note, I have no idea where you learned CPR, but your technique was pretty spot-on.
You may not understand this concept, but you both need sleep during the day. However, Grant needs naps more than you do. If he gets over-tired, well, lets just say
Here's an idea. If you are supposed to be sleeping, and your brother is laying still with his eyes closed, how about you just assume that he actually is doing what he is supposed to and leave him alone? Is that a good idea? Yes, your persistence in making sure he stayed awake this afternoon was very admirable, but not necessarily well timed.
This is why you got the time-out in the bathtub.
I know, the bathtub is not really a traditional time out spot, but I needed someplace to put you that would not disturb anyone else around. Since we have six rooms and five people here, I was short on options. I know you would
I really think we can come to an agreement here, don't you? We can discus this later, as I know you are (finally) sleeping as I write this. I can hear Grant in his bed, wide awake and kicking the wall. Tonight's birthday party ought to be a blast.
We'll chat soon.
Love you bunches,
