that’s not a big deal

The Magpie has decided to employ one of two responses.  Period.  It does not matter the situation, outcome, consequences, confounding factors or the will of others.

There are only two responses.

  1. all out melt down because the you and/or the world is the unfairest thing ever in the history of ever and years and years of therapy will fail to make a dent in suffering she is now experiencing.
  2. It’s No Big Deal.

There is no rhyme or reason to the application of these responses.  It’s pure lottery.  Refuses to pick out her clothes and doesn’t like the clothes I pick out?  Meltdown today, nonchalance and acceptance tomorrow.  Skidding across the sidewalk?  All good.  Dropping a fork?  The world just came to and end.

And now it’s bedtime.

Flip a coin – which will it be tonight?

One response to “that’s not a big deal

  1. you are not alone
    we had an, um, “issue” last night about 2:30a.m. because she woke up thirsty and I brought her water. Not juice. I was pretty certain it was the end of the world.
