One Inch of Sharing
Recently, Delphinium had a friend over to play. She was so excited to see him, and did a little dance upon his arrival. Soon they were busy in the playroom with some of the millions of toys we seem to have accumulated. At one point, Delphinium was playing with her baby dolls, and when her friend came near, she tried to prevent him from touching them. I explained that we need to share with our friends, and that she should choose the baby with which he could play. She thought very carefully, and then raced off to some secret corner. She came back and handed him a one inch long baby. This toy was literally the size of my fingernail. You could barely make out his tiny little face and diaper! The little boy seemed happy enough, but I am a little concerned that we need to work more on the concept of sharing.
