First off, Kendall is terribly funny because she'll often wake up and immediately launch into asking me if I remember something that happened. It becomes quickly apparent that she is referring to a dream but does not realize it. However she gets VERY upset if I don't tell her that I remember the same incident. So I'll admit I usually say I do remember just to avoid that. :)
This morning the second I walked into get her: "Mom, do you remember when we found a dinosaur bone in the bushes and we left it there? Then it went up in the air and came down and broke? Do you remember that???? We should have brought it inside! Why didn't we bring it inside???" Ummm....
Secondly I had a rough send of with Cam. I put on some of his new shoes, only to realize I had bought the wrong size for the second time. He started out slightly upset that he couldn't wear them, however then I escalated him by also becoming frustrated not only at myself for my bad purchase, but also at him for insisting he wear them. THAT was my mistake.
As soon as he sensed I was frustrated it spiraled down ("Mom, why are you so frustrated?" "Mom, I just want to know why you are talking firmly?") I quickly changed my whole demeanor and became super cheerful. It was too late. He needed longer than the 5 minutes we had until he and Chris had to leave for him to calm down. Chris said he was still upset at school and I think we both are anxious to see how our little guy is when school is out. I guess it's a good thing that right under my roof I have a constant reminder to keep my attitude in check. The reminder just happens to be my son. :)
