Preschool logic

I'm wondering if we don't need one of those gigantic Surburbans (or perhaps a circa 1970 Chrysler station wagon) in order to put some more physical space between the siblings and between the parents and siblings.

Big brother was feeling a little high and mighty after his grueling kindergarten screening this morning. (Aside from crossing his "t" in two steps instead of one continuous stroke it looks like kindergarten is a go in the fall.) Spidey decided to celebrate the event by tormenting his sister on the 10 minute drive home. There was crying and mocking and poking and shouting. There was no blood so I just turned up the volume on the radio. When the backseat noises wouldn't go away I shouted, "What the hell is going on back there?"

Of course, it was all about PLEASING his sister:
See Mom I haddid to hit her to make her cry and then I haddid to imitate her to make her hit me and then I go HEY and maded her laugh and then she feels better, see?
