Lucy is going through a phase where she is very emotional and gets frustrated easily.
Tonight, she was attempting to color in a heart on a card she was making for me. But, she kept coloring outside the lines, and was getting extremely upset, to the point of tears.
So I scooped her up in my arms and said: “You know what? Did you know that daddy makes mistakes too?”
Almost before I had finished the question, Lucy responded: “Yes.” It was at this point that Kathleen decided to chime in. With no sense of irony and without even looking away from her TV show, she says: “Oh yea dad, we knew that.”
Next time I might just let Lucy cry.
