Jaxon has officially been added to the book of biters. Apparently he figured out that he has a nice set of chompers and decided to test them out on Maddox.....unfortunately for him, they happen to be a little too nice. The first time it happened I think it startled both of the boys, but Jax quickly turned that surprise into a sense of accomplishment. Granted, I agree Maddox does tend to bully Jaxon a little bit, but they need to be on level playing grounds when they take it out on each other. Maddox, thank goodness, never was a biter, so I just don't think it's fair! So Maddox is now sporting a nice scab on his shoulder, hand and back where Jaxon literally drew blood each time. How do I handle this you ask? Immediate finger of soap in the mouth floowed by an escort to the room. Well, I get the blank stare with the soap and a grin when Jax stomps off to his room. I think the kid actually likes the taste of the soap and as for the room, it's nothing more than a little game. I say this also because he isn't learning his lesson. Tonight all the kids and me were laying on the floor playing and next thing I know I think Jaxon is hugging Maddox when in fact he was going for the shark bite on the leg....deflected!!! I quickly swipe Maddox's leg away. A few seconds later, Jax turns to give Maddox what I think is a hug, but OH NO... He went for the eye. Maddox felt the warmth of Jaxon's mouth bearing down on his temple and quickly screamed, startling the beast. Phew, just enough time to roll out of the way and scramble to Mom who saved the day. I'm tellin' you it happens just like that. The three other times it happened right in front of me and there was nothing I could do. They can go from friends to enemies in a flash. Poor little Ty is going to have some catching up to do if he wants to hang with the big boys!!!
Anyways, Maddox had his first day back to school today and he did awesome. The teacher told me he was super and acted like he never took a break. Maddox actually just asked me if he could go to school again next week. He was excited when I told him he gets to go again tomorrow. I think he really likes his new teacher and getting to see a lot of his old friends from last year. Alright well, I better go. I have about 12 hours of DVR video to catch up on and the house is quiet.
