She was pretty good at day care. They said she was quiet and well behaved at nap time, not disruptive like she has been. Then a huge accident this afternoon, that she just didn’t care about. How can pee-soaked pants be fun?
Getting home and dinner was another story. She seemed to have left her working ears at day care. It’s like she stopped speaking english, moved to a world of her own. She ran off, didn’t eat, cried when we prodded her along, threw food at her sister. The food throwing actually got her sent to bed. Without books.
We had been going to celebrate her good behavior at day care. With light box time and a candy cane and dancing. But instead, we had impertinence, crying and just a little bit of screaming. I know she’s learning about consequences, but really? I know when she’s tired, she’s not always in control, but that’s not an excuse.
Sigh. I wish my baby girl could learn this lesson quickly. She can be so fun when we’re not yelling at her.
