Calm Amongst the Chaos

Mama of 5 seeking calm in the chaos

Yesterday I was talking to Andi about guilt. I threw the word out there and she questioned what it was. I explained it as a feeling you get in your tummy when you know you are doing something either wrong or not nice. She said she understood and that was the end of the conversation.
Cut to Target a little later, I tell Andi to pick out a box of cereal, she grabs a big box of Lucky Charms, I say no let’s get this box (generic) she whines and says she wants the one with the leprechaun. I compromise and say then get the smaller box with him on it. Yes I’m cheap. So we finish up our Target trip and get home. I start unloading groceries and I see the generic Lucky Charms. I am totally confused. Andrew makes fun of the box and I say that isn’t what we got. I call Andi into the kitchen and ask her if she got that box of cereal and this is what she says “well I felt my tummy hurt like I had to poop but I didn’t have to poop it was, what is that called? Guilt? Yeah guilt. You said not to buy the big box and I wanted it, but then my tummy hurt so I put it back and picked up the other one.” Then she just walks into the other room. I stand there in awe. She listens. She listens.
