Ally and Max usually get along, but like all siblings, fights are inevitable. Now that Max is walking, he tends to grab whatever Ally has in her hands at that moment. Most of the time she gives in to him, but there are times when she fights back.
Their fights can get pretty physical, take today for example. Max took a toy trumpet and used it to hit Ally. I’m sure it wasn’t intentional, he’s at the stage where he takes anything and uses it to hit an object closest to him. The objective is to make as much noise as possible. Anyway, he hit Ally with it, not hard but we reprimanded him severely. He burst into tears and after a while, we realised that Ally was crying silently as well. When I asked her why she was crying, she said she didn’t like seeing Max upset. How sweet! We explained to her that he had to learn not to hit anyone.
