Thou Shalt Not Steal

Our world has been a little crazy since my mom went into the hospital, as it often is when there is a crisis. My children are being real troopers, but I get some interesting reports about what happens while I am away.

When I called to check on everyone yesterday, Elizabeth (3 1/2 yo) told me how dinner went.

E: We had a good day, Mommy. I ate my pizza like a big girl.
Me: That's great, sweetheart. Mommy is proud of you.
E: Yes, and after I ate my candy, I stole a piece of Abel's candy.
Me: (In my gentle, Mommy tone) Elizabeth, stealing is wrong. You need to ask before you take things.
E: Well, I did ask. But Abel said, "No," and got all mad at me, so I just took it.

We have a bit of work to do.
