Understandably the girl was instantly a puddle of tears. That hurts! Between tears she declared, "I don't like BABIES!" I don't like hair pulling babies either sweet girl:(
After hugging and comforting her, I placed Charlotte on the couch out of her sister's reach. I did my best to explain to her that Hannah wasn't trying to be mean. It was an accident. She is just a baby and we need to teach her how to be gentle. Charlotte seemed receptive.
I then gave Charlotte a small dish of trail mix with the instructions to keep it away from her baby sister.
C: Why mama? Why can't Hannah have it mama?
Me: Because she could choke.
C: Why mama?
Me: Because the pieces are too small for babies to eat.
C: She could choke mama?
Me: Yes Charlotte.
C: Choke and die, mama???
I promptly moved Hannah far, far away from her snacking sister!
