Cate learned a lesson in apologies and forgiveness this evening. While playing on the floor, she toodled over to me, and in her enthusiasm, clocked me in the head with a toy. So hard, in fact, that I cried. After the litlle birdies stopped circling my head, I asked her to apologize for hurting me.
This sweet (and strong!) girl climbed into my lap, kissed my forehead right where it hurt, and then threw her arms around me in a giant hug.
Can't tell this mama that even young toddlers don't understand apologies and forgiveness!
