A lesson learned

Saturday afternoon. Jane has been sent to her room.

Near the end of her time out, Erin goes in to have a chat. She is just wrapping up.

Erin:  ...Okay, Jane?

Jane: Okay.

Sometime during their talk, Jane laid back on the bed. Her breathing quieted down. She lay very calm.

Erin is impressed. Not long ago, Janey would have been so agitated by whatever event got her sent to her room, she'd never calm down, and never really listen to what we had to say. Is this evidence our little girl is maturing?

Jane: Know why I laid down like this? It's so the monsters think I'm dead and go away.

Oh she's clever. Later it will also be so Mom and Dad think she's listening. :)
