Sometimes, she surprises me even more than usual. What a mature thing to do.
Or, let me rephrase that. She did something I, in my infantile pettiness, would never have thought, no, never think, of doing.
When I came out of the shower the other day, I saw this note. It says,
Don't yell at m while your family are here. You emberess me daddy. - Madeleine
It makes me all choked up just thinking about it again. And the weird thing (to me) is, I wasn't even raising my voice. But at least now I know that she takes almost all forms of disapproval or chastisement as yelling.
Something to consider.
