I wanted some video of Ruslan talking so when he sat down in front of me with a book I started recording. He looked at the pages and then Wyatt wandered over with some toy shovels and started to hit the book and eventually Ruslan. Then Wyatt walked away and Ruslan went back to “reading”. I guess when you are a twin getting hit in the head with a shovel is not cause for concern. They are with each other all of the time and are used to the shift from play to wrestling to hitting and back to play – it is part of how they interact.
I played this video for the boys and when Ruslan saw Wyatt hit him, he yelled “No Wyatt!” Wyatt pointed at the screen and yelled “NO, Bad!” Then Ruslan turned toward Wyatt, pointed his finger, shook his head and said, “No, Wyatt – It’s NOT Funny, It’s NOT funny Wyatt!” Apparently he felt Wyatt was insincere.
