People are always asking me how Benjamin gets along with his brother and sister. It’s a hard question to answer, mainly because I end up coming off so negative which I really hate. The truth is there isn’t too much sibling interaction happening—especially between Benjamin and Ayla.
Zack, 7, is old enough—and has sat through enough therapy sessions—to understand how to relate to and engage with his brother, at least on some level. But Ayla just doesn’t get him, and it’s mutual. It drives Benjamin crazy when she whines (a frequent occurence) and it drives Ayla crazy when he expresses his annoyance by yelling out, “Ayla crying” or “Ayla funny” (not sure how he came up with that one).
And then, yesterday, this happened.
Benjamin was following a Youtube yoga video during a therapy session, and Ayla joined in. And he let her.
