G. loses her Bunny and Bear for various reasons based on her misbehavior. Today she was allowed to have Bear, but not Bunny.
When I offered Bear to her she said,”Bunny will be sad without Bear!” They spend their time apart from her in the same spot. I suggested that Bear stay with Bunny then. Normally, she says that she wants him anyway and seems to forget about Bunny’s feelings, but today was different.
“I will give him a hug, and then he can go back to Bunny.”
So, I brought her Bear, she gave him a huge hug, and sent him back to his companion in the taken-away-toy-holding-spot.
I am glad she is learning to share her favorite things, even if it is just with other toys. Though I am pretty sure if it had been one of her friends that wanted Bear, it would have been a different story…
