A conversation about ice with a 2 1/2 year old
Georgia do you want ice water?
No. Yes. Just water.
Ok, so no ice?
Ok. No ice.
(filling up orange cup with water)
I’m putting water in your cup. You asked for just water.
No, Mommy. No ice.
So you want ice?
So no ice.
No. and she starts to cry
So, water with no ice in your orange cup.
Here is your water with no ice in your orange cup.
Thanks Mommy. Then she goes about her usual business of bossing around her little sister.
Motherhood can be so confusing…
