Last week while feeding Maddy dinner I made the mistake of leaving her hat on the counter where she could see it. You might be wondering why this was a mistake. Well she LOVES her hat. She also uses sign language, the sign for hat is done by patting the top of your head. When you add her love of her hat together with the sign for hat and spaghetti sauce it equals spaghetti sauce in her hair and on her hat if she is wearing it. She got very upset that Luke and I would not let her wear it for fear of covering her new hat in sauce inside and out so she flipped out.
She didn’t just cry she sobbed, she screamed, her nose was running, and her face was splotchy. We pleaded with her to just finish her dinner, that we would give hand over the hat once she was finished and cleaned up, her answer…NO DEAL! The crying continued even after we moved the hat to a place where she could not see it.
The crying stopped once we cleaned her up and put the hat on her head. That night she insisted on going to bed with the hat on, I think she was worried that if she took it off she might never see it again. Crazy kid.
