little miss kindness

Cousin Erin, 8, came to visit for a long weekend. The girls played together for many hours of each day; and by the end of the visit, they were sort of sick of each other and behaving more like grumpy siblings than adoring cousins.

When it was time to go, Erin asked for a hug.

Caroline told her, "Oh, I already gave you one."

Erin disputed, "No! You did not!"

"Of course I did. It was an imaginary hug."

Wow... imagine if this catches on: Why yes, Mom, I did eat my vegetables. Of course I put my toys away.

She definitely was trying it out as a tactic. The impish/curious glance at me to see if it worked was more amusing than anything.
