They have a LOT of emotions.
Their emotions get bigger and bigger as they physically grow bigger and bigger. If you as a parent do things right, they’ll learn to master they’re emotions as they get bigger (most of the time). And that’s a valuable skill to have.
But sometimes ( like today!!! ), for no reason whatsoever, girls just have a hard time.
Trust me, I know a thing or two about girls: I grew up with three sisters- No brothers. I have two daughters- no boys. And to top things off, Doc has one sister, no brothers either.
This is why we’re adopting a boy, by the way. I’m not sure I’m capable of producing a boy.
If you’re blessed with a girl, give her lots of hugs, but don’t let her take herself too seriously, especially if she generally leads a happy life. Life is too short to spend it weeping away over manufactured dramas.
Doc will probably remind me of that in a few weeks when hormones take over my life , and I have a feeling it won’t go over so well…
