Okay - so we are getting ready for lunch today and I asked Abby what she wanted to eat. Her reply was spagetti, which we have in the fridge from a couple nights ago - easy, right? So, I got out the spagetti and warmed it up and got Abby up to the table. We had just finished the blessing when Abby burst into tears - got down from the table and ran to her room crying because she didn't like spagetti. I was still at the table - completely bewildered - what had just happened. Not knowing what to do, I ignored her and went to play with the twins (they smile at me, unlike Abby these days). Well, next time I turned around, Abby was back at the table eating her spagetti - with a big frown on her face. She finished what I had given her and asked for seconds (still frowning), cautiously I got her more and watched as she finished that bowl as well. I am no stranger to the terrible two's, the boys were stubborn, independent and tested me on all the rules, but this is different - I have no idea how to combat these emotional outbursts. This has to be a phase right - I mean, she WILL go back to being my happy, go-lucky girl soon, right?
I had to get a picture of this - this is the same girl who loves to have her picture taken, it had to be really hard for her not to smile!
