The Girl-Child is....sensitive.
Like, really, really sensitive.
As in, she cries.....a lot.
She melts into tears at least once a day, and these are not your typical, toddler tantrums. She is genuinely hurt. They are real tears and there is a real process of getting through the hurt feelings. It starts with a sniffle and before you know it she is all in.
Inspired by a Tumblr feed that I saw recently, I decided to take some photos of these moments. After all, they are just as much a part of her personality as the funny and cute photos that everyone wants to see. All of these pictures were taken within the last 2 months. The reasons in the captions are real, even when they seem impossible.
We won't let her drink the egg dye:
I gave her toys to play with in the sprinklers:
Still crying (20 minutes later) so I moved her to a towel:
I gave her the banana that she asked for.
Daddy left without her:
A full 10 minutes later:
She can't get her baby doll into her toy stroller:
I said "Time to go watch brother play baseball!"
She took the straw out of her cup so no slushie comes out when she sucks it:
Even though she has 2 necklaces, she wants mine:
I want her to play on the playground, she wants to be held:
I wish that I had a camera with me for each and every crying fit. Then again, if I did, this post would be way too long.
The point is, everything with kids is a phase. Laugh at the tough ones, you'll get through it...
and try not to think about what the adolescent years will be like!!
