Passive Aggressive

My Luci is the very picture of contradiction.
She is tiny. 4 pounds, 9 ounces at birth. 15 pounds, 14 ounces at a year.
Fits into size 6-9 month clothing at almost 15 months.
Has a small and angelic face.

But on the inside?
She's Voldemort.

Luci is 100%, without a doubt, the dominant twin. This is fine with me and not altogether unexpected. The females in my household are strong-willed, stubborn, and assertive.

But this little girl takes aggressive to a whole other level. She has made her brother into her own personal punching bag.

And Nicholas? Takes it. With zero retaliation, unless, of course, you count his attempts to break the sound barrier with his cries.

If they are sitting anywhere near eachother, and there are toys in the vicinity, Luci will pick one up and immediately begin hitting him on the head with it. If there are no toys in the vicinity, she will use her hands.

Oh, yeah. I just smacked him. And I'm about to do it again.

She's taken to pinning him down. Or perhaps she's attempting to hitch a ride on his back. I'm not sure which.

One afternoon last week, I watched as she took one toy after another and beat him upon his head with it. I would take one toy away from her with a firm, "No. No." And she would look at me, and then pick up another one, and do the same thing. This happened three times in a row.

She was smiling the entire time.

For his part, Nicholas does nothing. He sits there and takes it. He cries and looks at me, all, "WTF, mom?" He doesn't fight back. He doesn't move away. It's as if Luci is a python who immobilizes Nico with her venom, and then moves in on her prey for the kill.

But the other day, karma came back to bite Luci in her diapered behind.

Check out the following two videos*

Who's laughing now, sucka?

*As you probably noticed by his lack of tears, the ball was a soft, squeezable one from this toy. It wasn't a hard ball, and if it were, I may have put down the camera and stopped the assault...after I had captured a few seconds of it to sell to Cops, of course.

    Hehe... Well, I hope she somehow manages to keep her strong will once her brother starts taking up for himself!

    You are *so* funny. I was laughing so hard reading, and man that Luc, she's loving pushing the boundaries (like BOTH Of mine right now). So cute!! She was like, "hey, when I do *this*, then mommy says 'no'. Cool, me do it again."!! :)

    LOVE this post.

    Luci really looks like you in that 3rd picture. I usually think Nico looks more like you (and Isabella), but her facial expression in that photo is ALL Kristi!  

  6. # Blogger Pregnantly Plump

    She does look angelic! Poor little guy. I wonder what will happen when/if he starts defending himself?

    I agree with Hopeful Mother. Now we have proof that she is your child. Total Kristi look there!

    Ha ha ha!!! This is hilarious, it absolutely cracks me up that she dominates him so thoroughly, although I am not you or Nicholas. :)
