Feeling Guilty

I have been sat on the sofa for a little while with my Son watching the Thomas film for the second time. I asked him for a cuddle and he laughed and said no, so just messing around I pretended to get upset about it which to start with he thought was funny. Then all of a sudden he pouted and burst out crying. It was proper tears, he was so upset because he thought I was upset. I ended up feeling really guilty so we have now had a cuddle and he has calmed down and is playing with his dump truck. Poor Little Man I did feel bad when he cried. I won't do that again I don't want to make him cry like that. He does worry if he thinks someone is sad or upset over anything, I did get my cuddle but I didn't want to have a cuddle because he was crying.

Oh bless his heart, my little grandson did that when I said I was sad one day.

I wonder if he sleeps after he cries. Some children do that.

Oh dear, my son does that too - at least it shows they have a good emotional connection

I understand your feeling perfectly.
But the good thing is that children are very forgiving.

Aww! Although I haven't been in this situation, I would feel bad too.

We have to remember how sensitive our little ones are, not yet understanding our teasing. To think he made Mommy upset probably broke his little heart! But as you learned, it only takes kisses and hugs to make things right. Too bad more adults can't be more like him when they get their feelings hurt!

ha ha Next time try to smile when you speak with kids. They are very sensitive and believe everything.
