Tonight, I made dinner and Shaylie didn't want to eat it, as usual. She asked (begged) for cereal instead. I finally gave in but I told her in my most intimidating MOM voice that I was really mad.
She poured her cereal and looked at me and said, " You know, Mom...when I'm really mad I just put my knees backwards like this (she tensed her legs really tight and made a weird shaky face) and it really makes me feel better."
At least I know it's nothing personal. :) I may have to give it a try tomorrow night.
