Learning to Share

Everyday when Natalie gets home from school I let her watch one 20 minute episode of Ni Hao Kai-Lan while I am getting dinner ready.  She likes to sit on the kitchen bench seat so that she can be near me.  At this time of day Natalie is usually hungry and tired and therefore a bit cranky.  She wants to be left alone to watch her show in peace.  It was getting to the point that she was being quite rude to Gary when he said hi to her and asking a question about her show.  I had a big talk with Natalie about being nice and sharing. A few minutes later Natalie called her Daddy over and patted the seat beside her.  He sat down and she grabbed his hand.

Natalie looked up at me smiled and said "Mama, I share Daddy" (meaning "with" Daddy).  She was so proud of herself for sharing her Kai-Lan show.  Since this incident it has become a normal occurrence for her to invite her Daddy to sit with her.  I am so proud of the way she listens and applies lessons she learns.
