Yesterday, Morgan came home with some scratches on her leg. She proclaimed that "Ethan did it."
This morning, on the way to school - I hear Morgan & Tanner talking.
Morgan: "Tanner, Ethan scratched me."
Tanner: "I'm going to tell Aiden." (Aiden is his best friend at school.)
Morgan: "Yeah, let's tell Aiden."
Tanner: "And then I am going to spit on Ethan."
WHOA. (insert sounds of screaching trucks coming to a halt here)
I did explain to them that hitting / biting/ spitting / kicking were not okay, and that I was sure Ethan had only accidnetally scratched Morgan.
But, deep down, I was really proud that he was protecting his sister.
