A common theme in Avery’s life recently is “natural consequence.” She hurts herself constantly and when I ask her why she was over there, not ever here where I asked her to be …. natural consequence.
Before the softball game on Tuesday, the coach called all the girls together tell them that during the game they need to stay on the bench in the batting order… last week a girl wasn’t able to bat because she was visiting with her mom and missed her turn. Avery raised her hand and announced “That’s called a natural consequence!” I doubled over in laughter.
She finally finished reading Charlie & Chocolate Factory (Roald Dahl). She told me liked the book and it was “full of natural consequences.” She then explained what he each kid made wrong choices.
It’s nice to know she does listen.
