Andrew tried to reason with me that something was okay just because another little boy in his class did it.
When I picked him up from school yesterday, in conversation he told me that Noah hit him and then he hit Noah.
Then, later in the day, he hit Corinne.
M: Andrew, don't hit Corinne. You'll get a spanking if you do it again.
A: But Noah does it.
M: I don't care what Noah does! It isn't nice to hit people.
I realize that my response wasn't altogether wise or reasonable, but I was so caught off guard by his reasoning. Just another example of how big Andrew is getting... like he's three going on thirteen. I just hope hitting isn't going to be a problem for us now!
