Tonight, Lillian hit her head on the corner of something. She was screaming and crying. She said it was bleeding and she needed to go to the doctor. This brought back a bad flashback of a fairly recent ER visit. I was trying to calm her down and look at her head. No blood. She was still crying and walked into the dining room to a plate of cookies we decorated this morning.
L: A cookie will feel me better, mama. And I won't have to cry anymore.
M: Are you trickin' me girl?
I know what your saying. Melanie, don't give her the cookie! Only a novice mom would. I thought that was so creative that I gave her one. She did get hurt and then added the smooth move about the cookies. Hey, I have a bunch of people coming for Thanksgiving tomorrow and I had stuff to do. You and I both know I bought her off with the cookie, so she would be quiet.
P. S. novice moms. This is not a good idea, but it does work in a pinch.
