Toddlers cram so many milestones in, generally all at the same time, so it's no wonder that the frustration of trying to communicate sufficiently without the vocabulary can cause a toddler meltdown. My sister and I decided it would be a bit like us communicating in a foreign language - cue our very bizarre (and funny) conversation consisting solely of "small peas (petit pois)"; "milky coffee" and other words taken from the vast (NOT) holiday/school French vocabulary!
|Two toddlers, two babies and a pushchair - solution!|
All I know is that there is a time when kids *want* to share because they want to play with other kids and selfish toddlers do not necessarily grow up to be selfish children or adults. A friend of mine has the perfect solution - bring some toys from home for a play date! Ok, two pushchairs and two babies aren't always enough for two toddlers but it's a blooming good start.
