Camryn was in time-out this evening. She's not in time-out a lot, but when she is, it's devestating and she always cries to herself...tonight I had a pen and paper handy so I started jotting...here's what was said by Camryn...to Camryn in time-out. Remember..she's sobbing and dramatic...so add that into the translation...
I've been a good girl today.
I don't remember what to do.
I get a time-out every time I touch on the counter.
I am sad I'm in time out.
I want ice cream tonihgt.
She said we could have it tonight but I don't k now if I get any.
Mom - you love me SO much, don't you?
I love mommy SO much.
I'm really sad that you made me sad and you're sad too.
I just want to be happy.
Mommy I want you.
Mommy I really am hungry and I want some ice cream.
And you aren't letting me have some, are ya?
I'm so sad that you are making me SO SO sad that you have ever made me before.
I want you to come talk about why I'm in time out.
I'm not happy.
I get sad when you leave me alone and nobody gets me.
I sat there laughing...out of sight of course...as I jotted notes. I couldn't catch all the phrases because she was talking rather fast at times....but trust me...it was pretty entertaining!!
