Two Year Old's Apology

At dinner, Jackson had kiwi fruit and strawberries for dessert. After being fussy because he only wanted strawberries and didn't want kiwi, he decided that kiwi is now his favorite fruit. I asked him to share a piece with me and he proceeded to quickly shove any remaining traces of kiwi into his mouth. This was after offering me a piece and then changing his mind and taking it back.

I told him I was very sad that he didn't share.

After that he went with Rob, took his bath, and was getting ready for bed. I joined them in Jackson's room. He crawled into my lap, looked sad, and hugged me. He said, "Mommy, I don't like it when people are mean." I asked him who was being mean and he said, "Jackson." He said he was mean because he didn't share with Mommy.

What a sweet apology.
