Last night I was at the end of my rope with Elizabeth. At bedtime she was still screwing around instead of getting into bed and out of frustration I said "Oh I'm just going to run away forever!" because that is what she always says to me. Well that stopped her in her tracks and the tears began to fall.
"No mommy please don't run away. I'll be a good girl. I'll listen! I don't want you to runaway!"
I sat down with her and tucked her in and had a long talk with her about her behavior and how I was getting tired of the mean rude little girl and wanted the good girl back. She promised she would behave and made me promise to not runaway. I did.
This morning when she woke up she came for a snuggle and said "I'm happy you didn't run away mommy"
I am too...kinda! Someplace tropical would of been nice.
