Sock Seams

There is something demeaning and demoralizing about finding yourself kneeling in front of a little 2 year old, trying over and over to adjust their sock seams correctly while they cry and kick and shout that the seam hurts their toes. Every child raising book I have ever read streams through my thoughts: "Be patient." "Don't raise your voice." "Let her know that her feelings matter." And then, in the end, I am yelling, "WE HAVE TO GO! PUT YOUR SOCKS ON NOW!" So much for my Mother Teresa persona..... : )
