Well today we received a package from Jane's cousin, Kamyrn, of all her hand-me-down clothes. Aly got a hold of it and put on a dance suit that was in the box. When Jane noticed what Aly was wearing she threw a fit.
"Those are MY clothes. Get them off her RIGHT NOW!!!"
"Jane I will change her when we go inside but don't pull them off your sister out here." (we were outside in the front yard)
"I want her to change NOW!!"
When I told her "No", she ran inside and slammed the door. (She's such a peach sometimes:)
I ignored her behavior as I am slowly learning to do.
Minutes later Jane came running out the door in Aly's outfit. (I really wish I had pictures of this) Her attitude had completely changed and she was laughing her head off.
It was quite a sight; crop, midriff shirt; short capri pants riding up the "you know what". She jumped on her bike and continued to ride laughing til she was red in the face, when all of a sudden the neighbor kids (including a boy close to her age) came out and asked if she could play.
Jane was humiliated. She jumped off her bike and ran inside the house covering her tummy and bum.
I thought it was a very clever idea on her part and was thrilled that her attitude adjusted back to the Jane that I love.
