Thanks Kailan!

Kelsi used to want to watch Kailan - ALL THE TIME. We fed her hunger by DVRing every episode so they were on demand. It's not on anymore (that I can find???), so she hasn't watched it in over a month, but it was a great show. It taught social skills like : What to do if you are feeling angry, how to be patient, how to share, how to include everyone, and what to do if you are sad, etc.

Yesterday, I was having a rough afternoon. I tried a new recipe that night for dinner and somehow when I was about to put it in the oven, DROPPED IT all over the floor. I lost it, said a few words and then started crying (sometimes the stupidest things make me cry). Kelsi wanted to know why I was sad. I called John and asked him to bring something home for dinner and Kelsi asked to talk to him. I handed her the phone and I heard this:

"Mommy is sad, can you help her?"

When she was done, she hugged my leg and looked up at me and said, "Don't worry mommy. Daddy is on his way home and he will make it all better." I picked her up and gave her a hug and told her that she was making me feel better. She pulled back and said "I'll make a silly face". She made the funniest face and said, "THERE! Silly faces always make you happy!"


(For those of you that don't know every Kailan episode by heart, like we do. Kailan is sad one day after a surprise party she is planning is ruined and her friends try to cheer her up by making silly faces.)

So, THANKS Kailan! You are SO wise!

Crazy sweet story. You must be one incredible mom to have a daughter like that. Totally adorable.

Glad to know I am not the only one that has things like that happen and sweet little children to make you feel better. She is so cute! Love Kialan by the way!
