c h o i c e s.
They can be so hard. S was allowed to choose one special bead to take home. There was a 🐱bead that she had decided on...until she saw the 🦉bead. She was stumped. Then she decided she neeeeeeeded both beads. But, each child was only allowed one. She cried, then she tried to bargain, then she begged and cried more.
Would it have been MUCH easier (on everyone) to just buy both beads? Of course. In fact, I think the proprietor was about to give it to her just to get our chaos out of there. But, the thing is, making choices is something we do every day. It's really important. So, the big kids waited outside while I rode out the storm inside with Sloane. My goal was to stay firm but supportive while SHE made her own choice. She did it... finally. Guess which one she chose? .
