"Where'd Meemaw Doe?"

The other day, Grandma Netty was at our house playing, and apparently told Jackson that when he woke up from his nap, they would play with his car washer. Well, he fell asleep and about 30 minutes later, he woke up, which was also 2 minutes after she left. He woke up, came into the office, asked "Where'd Meemaw Doe?" I said, "She left, baby, she went to her house." Well, the lip went out, he asked a few more times, and then came the crocodile tears! I called Mom so that she could hear what was going on, and she said she had just turned into her driveway, but she was making a U-turn and heading back. She was not about to let her angel baby cry like that!

In the meantime, I took pictures of the big cry-fest that Jackson endured in the minute 30 seconds it took her to get back to our house!

Don't ever promise a 2 year old something and leave:

When she came back, Mommy still had some work to do in the office, so she took Jackson back to her house so that they could play with his car washer and eat Tee-tos (Cheetos).....oh, happy again!

Can you see why I don't let my son cry it out? Do you see that face and those splotches! He would have thrown up if I were to let him stay hysterical like that for very long--one reason I still lay down with him to go to sleep!! No FERBERIZING this child!
