a real life conversation...
the scene: graham wanted to eat doritos. he did not want to eat the quesadilla and apple slices i made for his lunch. i told him he could have doritos AFTER he ate his quesadilla and apple slices. he didn't think that was a very good idea.
graham: mama, can i please have some doritos?
me: nope. you have to eat your lunch first.
graham: but i'm not hungry for my lunch. i'm hungry for doritos.
me: no doritos until you eat your quesadilla and apples.
graham: (with tears welling in his eyes, bottom lip quivering, arms crossed over chest) mama, you hurt my feelings.
i have one child who is completely non emotional. i have one child who is completely over emotional. can you guess which one graham is?
