Wiggly Toddler (entering the room and wailing): Waaaah! I hurt my knee!
Approachable Man: Aww, come here and show me sweetie.
*WT crawls into his lap and sticks dirty thumb firmly in her mouth*
*whimpers softly and pathetically*
Helpful Kid (entering and holding out flower): Here, this will help you feel better!
*deposits flower and runs back out*
WT (muttering under her breath): Don’ wanna feel better.
Me (distracted): What did you say, sweetie?
WT: Nothing. Here, Mommy, flower for you.
*holds out flower*
Me (hands full, working on knitting project): Uuuh, why, thank you.
*struggles to retrieve proffered flower and set it down*
WT (eyes on flower): What are you goin’ do with the flower?
Me (trying to focus): Mmm?
WT: Actually, I wan’ the flower back.
*holds hand out expectantly*
Me (blinking at hand): Uuuh…oooookay.
*struggles to pick up and returns said flower*
WT (brightly): I feel better now.
*jumps up and runs out to join her sister*
