Today the four year old is on treat lock-down as a punishment for being rude. After much protesting, flailing about and gnashing of teeth, I thought she’d finally come to accept her fate. Then:
Amy: “Mummy, remember when I was running with a sharp decoration because I was so excited, and I fell over and it made a little hole in my hand and I cried and cried? And you said you felt so sad for me?”
Me: “Um, are you talking about last Christmas? I think I remember…but that was seven months ago…”
Amy: “Yes, it was Christmas. I still feel really sad about that. But a treat would probably make me feel a lot better about it”.
