That would explain the aggression...

Today I was sitting on the couch downstairs while the kids were playing. Jack threw himself onto my lap and hugged me. Emmie crawled over to investigate and pulled herself up on the couch with a huge smile on her face, causing Jack to freak the hell out.

"No Emmie!" he yelled. "That Jack's mommy!"

Surprised, I quickly said, "No, I am Emmie's mommy too. I am Emmie AND Jack's mommy."

He fired back, "Love only ONE kid. No love Emmie. Love Jack."

What? How on earth does a 3-year-old make that leap?

I said, "No, I love you both. I love Jack and Emmie."

That would explain his loving and respectful treatment of her. Ahhhh, the joys of sibling rivalry have begun early for us. At least he's not trying to sell her on the Internet. Yet.
