Hot Rod

3/17/11 School Report - OT: Worked with Nikko at centers (cut, glue barn) then pulled Nikko & he did animal walks, trampoline and worked on name & person drawing.

This evening Denis was running out to pick up some food and told Ronin he could come along. Ronin had a purple hot rod car and misplaced it in the flurry of putting on his jacket. Ronin couldn't find it, started getting adamant about bringing it, and was whining, "I want my hot rod caaaaaaar!"

Nikko was sitting at the kitchen table, seemingly oblivious to the melee, but then he turned to Ronin with a green school bus (also considered a hot rod because the green paint was sparkly), gave it to Ronin and said, "Hot rod?"

Ronin looked at it for a few seconds and then said, "Oh, OK."

I was surprised and asked Ronin if he was ok with the bus. Ronin said, "Yeah, it's a hot rod." I was doubly surprised that Nikko showed a brief instance of sympathy for his whining brother. I have seen such a thing happen once before when Audrey was crying over a toy that I've long since forgotten. It's too bad these siblings don't share their toys more often because these flashes of sympathy would greatly improve the positive temperature in our house!

  1. Oh, that's so cute and cool of Nikko! I can just imagine the interaction now. Pretty rare I'm sure, but at least you witnessed it! :)
