After Emma had been disciplined for destroying my bedroom, a perfectly good bottle of lotion AND a jar of Vick’s Vapor Rub, I went into her room to console her. She was curled up on her bed hiding under her blankie and crying. (DON’T you feel sorry for her! REMEMBER what she did?)
Me: Come here, honey. (Emma falls into my arms still crying.) Baby, Mommy loves you so much but you can’t make messes and tear things up like that.
Emma: It’s OK Mommy…I porgive you…
Me: Yeah well, I forgive you too. But you’re going to have to take a nap now because you aren’t acting like a big girl.
Emma: OK Momma, I will.
Two hours later…
Aubrey: Boy, Emma sure has been in time out for a loooooong time…
Me: She’s asleep.
