Nothing is sadder…

Posted by Sandra on November 9, 2008

Than a 3 year old trying so hard not to cry, when her little world is turned upside down…

Autumn came out of the bathroom yesterday with her bottom lip sticking out, tears welling in her eyes, and that sweet puppy dog look that makes a mama melt… after she ran over to throw her arms around me and sob, she told me that

“Ayla put my crayon in the potty!!!!”

This is one of the moments a mom has a hard time with – it’s so cute and sad and a little funny, and I have to resist the urge to chuckle, because I know Autumn is truly devastated.  So I told her it was okay, we could get it out.

She said no… “I peed AND poopied and I flushed already!!!!!  *Sniffle sob sniffle!!!!*  And it was my GREEN ONE!!!!”

After I assured her that we had plenty of green crayons, and proceeded to get them for her, her little world was again restored to order.  Tragedy over.

Ah.  Just as I was seeing an end to the sibling battles with her big brothers, I just had a picture painted of what my future holds in store with two little girls, much closer in age, and much more sensitive! 

Lord knows my life is anything but boring.  And I wouldn’t trade it for the world, no sirree.
