Tantrums, Sneezies and Sharing

When I dropped off my 2-year old daughter today at daycare she was really sad. This is pretty common after a long weekend with Mommy and Daddy (and several birthday parties with endless cupcakes). I had to run to a meeting, but I told her teacher to call me and let me know how she was doing later that morning.

When I got back to my desk, I had a voicemail message from her teacher. The message relayed the following,
"Mae was really sad when you left, but I let her play Sneezies on my iPhone and she perked right up."
Two hours later, I received a follow up call:
"Can you stop by at lunch? Mae hid my iPhone and won't tell me where it is."
I was able to find the iPhone in her cubby tucked in away with her blanket and doll. I told her that it wasn't nice to take thing and not give them back. Her response, "I was just you always say to do." Apparently, her doll wanted to play too.

Touché Mae Mae. Touché.
