"I forgive you...."

So that Emma and I could attempt to finish our dinner in peace, I moved Ally and her tantrum from the table to "Time Out". I can only assume my visible (though quickly failing) effort to remain calm prompted Emma to take pity on me and apologize for her ealier misbehaviors. Here's about how it went:

"Mama, I have something to tell you. I want to apologize for saying I wanted that doll at HEB today. I'm sorry I yelled and told you that I was going to get it anyway. It's okay that you didn't get it for me. And, well..... I forgive you."'s a start, i guess....
