Workin' it

Matthew dotes on Isaac. Issac is his brother. It has at least as much to do with being far enough apart in age that Isaac isn't seen as a rival in the same way as Melissa, but in Matthew's mind, it all comes down to both being boys.

Isaac is figuring out how to take advantage of this.

Tonight, Matthew was setting up a game of Starcraft with me, but while he let it start up Isaac came over and banged on it a bunch. When Matthew came back it was restarting and giving him some kind of "Windows is running repair" message. I guess Isaac hit the power button; it glows seductively.

Matthew was pissed.

"Isaac!" he yelled, "I'm going to play a game with Dad! Now I have to wait for this to start up again!"

Isaac came over with a hangdog look and put his arms around Matthew.

Matthew was unable to stay angry at the two year old hugging him. "Isaac, just don't do that again, okay?"

(For the record, when we finally got to play, we won.)
