Unappreciated Appreciation

Picture 011

Gabe hit Seth.  Mom thought that since Gabe couldn’t handle Seth in the room with him, he should just clean the room by himself, without Seth’s help.  Gabe was mad, but did it.  When he was done with the bed, the dirty clothes and lots of toys, Seth looked at the room.  Mom heard Seth gasp. Seth quickly went and found Gabe, and with real pride in his voice, said: “Wow Gabe.  Gweat job on the woom.  I’m weally proud of you how you cleaned our room.”

Gabe, despite Seth’s sincerely given compliment, slammed the door in his face.

Little brother syndrome. We had it here. They want nothing more than a little nod from the big guy only to be squashed like a bug.

Ryan knows just how Gabe feels! My mom would tell Ryan and Greg they could come out of their room when it was clean. Ryan usually ended up cleaning up the entire room so he could come out! Greg probably thanked him too. (:
