I'm getting it...

Yesterday I knew for sure that all the reading I have been doing is sinking in. My daughter (age 5) had dissolved in tears (yet again) because of some torment (real or imagined) inflicted on her by her older brother (age 8). Without even thinking, my first words to her were "You can't control what he does; you can only control how you react."

It cracked me up.

Oh Sarah, that is too funny.

My little ones also get it. Even the Magpie (3) when I am irritated (usually because she is being SOOOO three!) has said, "Going to a meeting Mama?"
