At child care, Lillian and Aurelia were playing at washing and drying babies. The play area was set up with a washtub, plastic dolls, change table, towels etc.
Lillian took the baby doll over to the tub and put it in the water. Aurelia was holding the ladle (a plastic cup from a box of washing machine powder). Lillian just reached and tried to grab it. Aurelia held on tightly. The two were then in a tug-of-war. Over came a carer and took it away. Which was a bit unfair to Aurelia since it was Lillian who hadn’t played nicely to begin with.
As we were leaving, I insisted that Lillian apologise to Aurelia. Happily enough, she ran across the room, and said loudly “Sorry Aurelia!” while touching her shoulder.
