How to feel like a really, really, really, really, really, REALLY bad mom

While visiting the refugee family (newly-arrived from Burundi) that Communality has adopted for Christmas, have your daughter attempt to seize each of the (few) toys they have, saying "Mine! Mine!" over and over. Have the refugee boys (ages 4 and 6) look at her and each other like they're thinking, "She's a little crazy, this one -- better let her have the toy just in case."

I was afraid when I saw the title that it was just going to link to one of my posts.

We were at a gingerbread decorating party yesterday and William found a plastic light saber with which he proceeded to whack every other child there, including the 18-month-old baby. I feel your pain.
