Last night, as I was preparing for our trip, I had to make a run to Wal-Mart... and of course Robert and the kids were with me. Well, as we were checking out Kali brought me a push pop... and was quickly told no way hose'. Guess she didn't like that answer... she went around the corner and quickly started to open it... Robert caught her before she could get it open... but her motive was clear. He took her to the truck and doled out her swat... and she went to bed when we got home.
Before bed last night, I asked her if I needed to call her Grammy, who is a probation officer, or her Grandpa, who is an officer at the county jail... I saw her little face crumble. I asked her if she new what it was called when someone took stuff that wasn't theirs... and what the consequences were... and she began to cry tears... real ones... not fake ones like I normally get. I feel kind of bad... like I overreacted over a stinkin' push pop... but what happens if we don't make a big deal about it.
Any advice on this one?
