This is just a quick story from 100'sDay while we wait for the pictures on the whole story.
While we were having the cotton ball race, one of the little ones who doesn't take losing or correction of any kind very well, lost...of course. Major melt down. When it was her turn to race again, we took lots of time re-explaining how it needed to be done to be successful...she was not convinced nor very interested in trying again, but it was that whole get back on the horse thing, so she got to the line and laid her cotton ball down. She did much better this time and even won, BUT that is not the story. Here is the story: the little one she was racing against, ever so carefully fiddled about and waited unobtrusively to blow her cotton ball until the struggling child had advanced hers and she never blew hers hard enough to get ahead. And she was good at it...I'm sure the other child had no idea she was letting her win because she knew she needed to win.
Wow. Right? Heart warming moment that brought tears to my eyes...can't wait to tell her mother.
