My girl had a sweet friend spend the night last night, and they stayed up SO late. Now she is more than just a little prickly. Knowing this, I sent her to bed and told her to read a while. My secret plan/hope was that she would fall asleep. Instead she cried because she wants more Barbies. ?
She came out after a while and let me know that she had been crying ‘a long time’ over a ‘silly thing.’ When she told me that she was crying over Barbie, I agreed that it was a little silly. Then she said that she had to cry because she had been crying over such a silly thing. *sigh* Why must this cycle of self-berating begin so young??
