Let`s Talk About Feelings

Posted on November 19, 2008 - Filed Under Kids |

I`ve been really working with Dorian on talking about how he feels, as opposed to scratching, biting and screaming. And apparently it`s working. Here are a few things we`ve heard over the past few days . . .

************************************************
At the lunch table this afternoon . . .

“I`m sad for Pepsi. It`s really sad there`s no Pepsi.”

After his brother was bugging him and taking his cars . . .

“Mama. I`m MAD. I`m SO MAD. Dante is bugging!”

***********************************************

After going into his dark room to get a toy . . .

“WOOOO! I`m scared! That`s really scary!”

***********************************************

Last night, after vomiting all over the floor, the chair and me . . .

“Well, that was disgusting.”

**********************************************

It`s getting passed on, too. Now Dante will shriek at something . . . anything, really, from a bug to something on TV and run to hide his face in my leg, yelling “Me sus TASTE!” Which is his version of “me asustaste” which means “You scared me”.

    Kim, that was rather appropriate, wasn`t it? :D

    Bernie, even though he DID puke on me . . . I was laughing about it, too, after that little remark. I LOVE listening to kids!

    The picture with your post is absolutely 250% adorable :-) I’m sad that he’s for Pepsi (I’m a Coke person! LOL)

    Kids are so cute & I love how something they say can turn a bad situation into a funny one. Not that puking on you was really a bad situation. But anyways I would have been laughing if my son did that and then said well that was disgusting. Priceless!

    Tishia, I`m a Coke person, too, but had to switch here because Pepsi seems to have the monopoly on Guatemalan soft drinks. It`s hard to find Coke around here.

    He and Grant are so in sync. Grant’s favorite emotion words right now are “frusserated” and “uh-barrassing”. He puked at mom’s house the other night, and all he did was say, “GaGa, I think I need some help.” LOL!
    Are you just amazed that being covered in puke can turn into a funny situation?
    Oh, and I think it’s adorable that Dante is copying his big brother. :) I love little boys.

    It’s tough learning to ‘use your words’! What a cutie though :-) We’re going through the blame game now with my daughter… not “I’m mad”, but “YOU made me so mad”… we’re getting there.
