Boo-boos and bullies?

At school yesterday, Sims had a little accident.  One of the older kids in his class, who is almost 2 years old, pushed him, and he fell into the bookcase or table or something.  He has a bruise on the bridge of his nose, but apparantly he was very good about letting his teachers put ice on it.  Now I know that the kid who pushed him wasn't a bully.  He's not even 2 years old.

I just took it all in stride because I was reminded of what we went through earlier this year.  You see, Sims was the "bully" in his infant class.  He quite often would bite the other kids, and not the kids who were close to his age.  He would bite the little babies who probably couldn't even roll away from him.  It was pretty awful.  As soon as he went to the toddler class, things changed, and he hasn't biten anyone since.  We are very thankful of that!

So when another child does something not very nice to Sims, I have to remember what the parents of those little babies were going through.
