Christian was happily riding a tricycle at the Phoenix Children's Museum and went through a pretend car wash. The path was narrow - not quite wide enough for two trikes. An impatient little girl came up beside Christian and grunted to him her irritation that she couldn't pass through at the same time.
I quickly stepped in maneuvered Christian and his trike so she could pass through ... but my lil' man was already upset by her behavior towards him - he's very sensitive to being admonished ... by us, or by a cranky little girl.
I said to Christian, "Did that little girl scare you?" And since then, when he's feeling uncomfortable in a situation, he quietly says to me, "Did that little girl make you cry?" And that's my cue that he needs a little love and reassuring.
