A Broken Heart

Today Addie asked for some candy. We then made up a song about candy. It goes like this.
I want candy. clap, clap clap clap clap (fast)
repeat a bunch
No, candy. clap clap clap (slowly and sadly)
repeat some more

Well Edith was quite excited throughout the first part of our song, dancing and clapping along. Then she heard the second verse. She was brokenhearted and started crying. It was so sad. She was upset and cried for quite some time. Addie was very comforting bringing her stuffed animals and blankets, and telling her "its just a song" and "its over now." So please don't let Edith think she is going to get candy when there is none.
This picture is the little darling showing off her camera smile, squinty eyes and all.
