Its been a rough day today. The 4 year old I watch has been very grumpy and mean to Emma. I'm trying to teach her the concept of, if you dont have something nice to say dont say it at all, but thats a hard concept to grasp, even for some adults. Its hard for me to understand how you can be mean to someone thats only trying to be nice to you. Its probably just her age. She knocked Emma off the kitchen chair today then later pushed her down cause she was trying to give her a hug. I'm sure she'll cheer up later when she gets her Christmas present from me. Hopefully she'll be more grateful than the one I watch on 3rd shift,,, she acted like she couldnt care less when she opened her present and didnt even say thank you. It kinda made me sad and mad. But its all about the spirit of giving right?? I think it just feels a lot better when the person you give to is happy.
We did some painting today,, Emma loves to paint and draw.
