A Flower- dough on dough- 30 months
Me: ABigail, sit up and stay still still so I don't pull your hair
Abigail (silently sobbing): Mommy, I am not happy
Me: I am sorry , baby, why aren;t you happy
Abigail: Because I am sad
Me: Why are you sad?
ABigail: Because you yelled at me
Me: I am sorry baby, why did I yell at you
Abigail: Because I would not sit here (pointng to the back of the chair)
Me: Well if you do not sit still, I will pull your hair
Abigail: Don't pull my hair- thats not nice!
Me: Then sit still, do you want a banana?
Abigail: Yes, wipe my tears! Can I wear my new princess shoes?
Just proof that no matter how bad things are ....a new pair of shoes can make it better
