My daughter had snack before bed, and when taking a sip of water, found that some spilled onto her fleece PJ’s.
She started to cry.
“What’s wrong?” I asked.
“Wahhhh… GSGHJSBERHGAEHTHDFGSADSD” was her reply.
“Huh? What?” I asked again.
Close to being hysterical, she replied, “Afniwngiwgweprgpwgnie.”
“I’m sorry. Can you please stop crying and talk slower… What happened??”
She said. “I spilled water on my PJ’s… I need to change them.”
“You can wait” I said, “They’re flannel or fleece, they will dry quickly.”
She sobbed a little, and finished her snack.
Then without warning, she got up, walked over to the counter, placed her bowl on the counter, cup in the sink, turned to me and said; “Daddy. I’m NOT going to change my PJ’s. The top has already dried, and you did say they would dry quickly, so that means the bottom will be dry before I knew it. You were right. I was wrong. I love you. Goodnight.”
And out of the kitchen she walked.
I stood there.
Did anybody hear that?
It may be the only time, but at now 4-years-old. I think she got it.
so my pants will too. you were right, I was wrong.
