This morning as I was trying to leave the house an argument erupted.
Scarlett was trying to tell me something, and her brother was complaining at me that I hadn’t put his cereal bowl in the right spot. I told Scarlett to wait a minute. At this point she burst into tears and ran down stairs screaming that Xavier always gets to talk first.
After losing my own temper, I put Xavier in his place (screaming) while I went to find Scarlett. When I found her I apologised for what had happened.
As I hugged her she said “I wish Xavier had a zipper in his mouth and only you could open it”.
Wouldn’t that be nice?
