Today I almost lost it after being sick with little energy, Tyson gone all day, Leila only wanting to be held, and Eden not wanting to do anything she should be doing.
I finally started to get a little angry....and finally calmed down enough to say, "Eden. Mommy REALLY needs you to be nice to her and love her."
Eden was very nice when she saw how stressed I was. She held my hand and said, "Mom, I love you so much!" as well as "I'm a good girl and be obedient."
After she said that I asked, "Then will you help me out by eating your dinner?"
She looked at me with concern, still holding my hand, and gently said...
"But mommy. I don't want to eat my dinner."
