Usually I have to ask Schatz fifteen times what she wants for breakfast. She's ignoring me and I'm multi-tasking. Getting ready in the morning takes all morning. At the suggestion of a friend, I decided to try giving her my full attention instead of putting on the tea, listening to the radio, and writing a grocery list while fixing her breakfast.
I rested my elbows on the table, put my chin in my hands, and looked her straight in the eye.
Me: What would you like for breakfast this morning.
Schatz: What do we have?
Me: We have oatmeal, Trix, or toast.
I just waited and continued to make eye contact.
Schatz (after about 10 seconds): Trix. Ummmm, Mommy? Could you stop looking at me? You are creeping me out.
