Listen Honey

Sometimes, especially when Hazel has been in Berserker Town all day, I lose it.

I try not to cry in front of my kids, but it happens.

And then Violet tries to take care of me, which often upsets me more, because I feel like a crappy parent, psychologically dumping on my little three-year-old.

She holds my face and wipes away my tears and says, “Listen Honey….it’s okay. It’s gonna be okay. Take a deep breath. It’s not your fault. I love you. Okay Honey?”

Then it does feel okay. Because she’s mimicking me. That’s what I say to her. That’s what she knows to when someone is upset.

I did that.

That’s good parenting, right?
