A different reason to be proud of Aria - Aria MacDonald

A different reason to be proud of Aria

I was doing wiggle juice with Aria tonight and I was talking with her about her day with mummy and Asher.

I was asking if she had been a good girl today and had listened to mummy and done what mummy had asked her to. To my surprise she told me that she hadn’t. She then went on to tell me that she had hit Asher because he had been trying to take her playdough. I asked whether she had said sorry to Asher and she went all shy. I had a little talk to her about needing to be gentle and patient with Asher and what it is to be a good big sister and family and she listened well like she normally does.

After I had Aria in bed I told Anita what she had said and asked what had happened. Anita then proceeded to tell me that Asher had been trying to ‘share’ some playdough that Aria was playing with and Aria was being a little bossy and naughty by pointing at him and saying loudly “No, Boomie!, No Boomie!”. Unfortunately Asher got a bit close and Aria knocked him on the nose. Asher was a bit shocked apparently and went to the other side of the room to have a sit down and gather his thoughts.

Now this is the part I’m proud of, Aria, realising that she had hurt Asher (or his feelings at least) got up and walked across the room to find him, patted him on the head as she does and said “Sorry Boomie”. I’m so proud of her for saying sorry, even though the hit was really an accident.

In other things to be proud of, today Aria was getting one of her dressings changed and asked Anita for a pillow, being busy with the dressing Anita wasn’t able to reach one. Then much to Anita’s surprise Asher came wandering in from the other room with a pillow for Aria. He then went and got one for himself and lay down next to Aria. Then Aria asked for a blanket and Asher went and got one of those too. Way to go Asher!

I love my kids, they make me so proud sometimes!
