I Feel Like That Inside

A baby on the aisle next to us at Target was crying this morning.

"Mom, do you hear that baby crying?! That is exactly how I feel inside right now." my girl told me.

I knew she was done. Ready to go. She'd already expressed that to me in a calm fashion. But I had to find her sister's facial scrub as the last thing to go into the cart before we headed to checkout. Still, she was aware of how she felt and was able to regulate a few moments longer instead of screaming with that baby!

A. very. big. deal. indeed! 

All the work over the years on physical awareness, on physically stopping, on physical control, is moving into mental and abstract modes.
