Jet surprised the heck out of John and I tonight. I'd gotten a book called Overcoming Repetitive Motion Injuries the Rossiter Way, and it basically is a book of stretches that need the help of a friend. A lot of it involves the helper using their feet to apply as much pressure as the person doing the stretches needs on certain points. So John was helping me out with them when Jet tackled him yelling, "No! No! Go away!!" and crying pretty fiercely. We figure Jet thought John was hurting me and was defending me.

That nearly made me cry. Bitty gnat boy tackling great big guy so fiercely in my defense is NOT something I would have thought would happen.

We stopped. We all got hugs, and Jet got reassured and while he pushed John away a few times, eventually, he hugged John, too. John went to sleep, and I took care of Jet until he calmed down enough to do the usual going to sleep routine. John and I will have to do this when Jet's napping tomorrow or something. It's obviously upsetting him. Poor toddler.
