Toddler Emotions

Toddlers cracks me up...

Paul, Ian, Laurel and I have just finished swimming. We have taken all the boats, styrofoam noodles and squirt guns out of the water. Paul is reconnecting the pool vacuum, while the kids and I put the toys away onto the patio.

At one point, I turn around and catch Laurel sitting at the pool edge, dipping her feet into the water. This is a big no-no, especially since she does not yet know how to swim. She knows better, so I immediately sit her in a chair on the patio for two minutes of time-out.

Oh yes, there are tears. Between sobs, she screams, "I am very angry...and jealous!" Then very softly, she whispers, "And I love my mommy."

Good mommy! The little lady is paying attention.

SwingDaddy has been working on cleaning the hot tub that we've ignored since moving into this house, so we've just started the whole, "never go near unless Mommy or Daddy is here" routine.

She's in touch with her emotions!
And knows who to keep on her side.

...and she was probably also hungry and sad at the same time, too, right? :) Cute!
