Nearing the end of the day I commented to Lottie "We had a tough day didn't we?"
"Yah" she said.
Me-"I am sorry I yelled at you"
L-"You were maad."
Me- "I WAS mad. Do you know why I was mad?"
L-"I KI-cked you!"
Me- It had gotten pretty hairy when she refused to let me change her diaper. She indeed did kick me, in the chest, while on the changing table. I was pretty upset and it stayed with me longer than I would have liked
"You DID kick me." "That hurt mama, I didn't like it."
Me- "I like to make you happy, and I like it when you make me happy" "Can we try to make each other happy?"
She gets of my lap and goes to the freezer. I sigh thinking she just doesn't get it.
"Umfh, I can't GET it." she says.
"What are you trying to get?" I ask as I get off the couch.
Jerry Garcia & Stoneyfield swirl
"Mama. You need to get a Bow-el. We SHARE to-gether"
That does make mama happy :)
She gets it. I heart her.
