Another Conversation

Another conversation... between Lydia and I yesterday afternoon.

Mommy: Reprimanding Lydia and explaining that she needs to use NICE words with her brother.  "Lydia, do you understand me? (pause) Lydia? Do you understand?"

Lydia: Pursed lips. Chin up. Swift glance out the car window away from Luke and I. "I can't talk, Mommy."

Mommy: "You can't talk?"

Lydia: "No."

Mommy: "Why not?"

Lydia: "I'm too tired."

UGH How do you manage a two year old?!!?!?
You'd think I've NEVER done this before!
