I just told Julia that dad was running in a race this morning, the longest race he's ever run before (Go Clark!).
Julia, lip quivering: "Can I go run in a race, too?"
Me: "Yes. Well, we are going to go watch him."
Julia, lip continuing to quiver: "Can I go running, too?"
Me: "What did I just say, we're going to watch him."
Me, frustrated by the copious amount of meltdowns the last few days: "Yes, you can go running! Go put on your shoes."
Julia, head down, walks slowly out of the room: "I'm really disappointed."
Does anyone know how to deal with SUPERBLY sensitive children? I think she senses this move is going to be a big change, and has about 6 meltdowns before breakfast. Every single thing turns Julia into a puddle on the floor, from requesting she go potty, to telling her we are going to the park, something she likes to do. I am going CRAZY! Help?
