She has this special spot at the top of the stairs, where she likes to go when she’s upset.
Sometimes, it is me who she’s upset with.
I tell her its okay, everyone needs time alone to cry once in a while.
She learns that emotions are okay, and how to handle them appropriately.
I learn Patience, as I give her space and wait for her to be ready to rejoin us.
When I sense the time is right, I slowly climb those stairs….
And by the time I get to the top…..
She always greets me with a smile, ready to welcome me back into her space.
Because sometimes, all it takes is a little Patience.
Shelly is a WAHM to two girls. You can find her daily at Adventures of a Breastfeeding Mother.
