Bad news: Yesterday Riley slammed her poor little fingers in a heavy drawer. Much wailing ensued.
Good news: No lasting injuries.
Better news: Riley knew exactly how to cheer herself up:
1. She gathered the following items:
3. Through her tears, she said, "Want to read book to make me happy."
Best news: She hasn't yet acquired her mommy's coping tactics: "Want ice cream/cookie/cupcake to make me happy."
Please note: this photo was not taken at the scene of the finger smashing. (Mommy hopes not to reinforce those coping mechanisms.)
