Random Acts of Kindness and 1 Year Well Visit

So far, things are going really well with AC and B being in the same classroom, but a funny thing has happened.  When I posted about this topic earlier, someone mentioned that the competition between them could be good and make them try harder.  I had never thought of it that way, but I think it might be true.  AC and B's teacher keeps a Random Acts of Kindness jar on her desk and if she sees you doing something kind, she writes your name on the paper and puts in a jar.  When it's full she pulls one name out and that person is given a special reward.  She also sends a note home praising the child. Well, on the first day of school AC came home bursting with pride that she had gotten her name in the jar for getting some friend's lunchboxes for them.  Brian overheard me talking with AC about it and wanted the details.  Every day since, they have each come home with Random Acts of Kindness notes and it is always for whatever act the other had done the day before.  Not even going to touch this as I'm just glad they showing kindness and not fighting!
Yesterday was the baby girl's 1 year well visit.  They had to get 4 shots and were not happy about it...the poor things!  Lyla James weighs 21.4 pounds and is 30 inches long.  Mary Connor weighs 19,5 pounds and is 26 3/4 inches long.  When they both started screaming after getting their shots, the nurse asked me what I do when they are both crying....run?
