I‘ve been reading through my journals lately. A little over fourteen years ago, here’s what my four-year-old Missa (the one in the red shirt) said to me over dinner:
“You should say you’re sorry for yelling at me about the ice cream.”
I kissed her and said I was sorry.
“If you want to make me cry, just yell at me.”
A little later she said, thoughtfully, “Just because you yell at me doesn’t mean you don’t love me, right? You’re teaching me things I need to learn, right?”
