Annie and Amelia are laying on our bed watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I am in the laundry room putting clothes in the dryer because my husband who has been home by himself for almost 5 days has nothing to wear (our laundry room is really hard to find).
Annie suddenly screams, I think to myself that I can probably ignore that because it is a new trend. Then Amelia cries and Annie cries louder. I come running in and will myself not to grab Annie first so that I do not show favoritism. Both girls are crying and both have tears rolling down their faces.
I ask Amelia what happened "I I I I bit Annie." "You BIT ANNIE (not shouty capitals, just firm capitals)? Why would you do that?" "Because I bit her" "Go to your room and sit on your bed." I cuddle Annie for a bit and she smiles. I also notice about four strands of hair in her left hand. Well, that explains it. We go into Amelia's room where she is still sobbing and I ask her again why she bit Annie and she sobs "Because she pulled my hair" as she demonstrates.
We had a conversation about telling Mommy before you take the law into your own hands. Both sisters apologized and gave one another a kiss. Now everyone is fine except that Annie has a small bruise on her belly OUCH! and we are off to playgroup and lunch.
