Me: Charlotte, I am sorry but your choices are to play outside with Maya and I or to stay inside by yourself.
Charlotte: Waaaaaaaah haaaaaaaaah my life is so hard and I'm cold and waaaaaaaah
Me: I understand that you are very mad at me right now. Let's take off your boots and coat and...
Me: I know it's hard when you're cold and tired, but your choices are to stay in or to come out, and your screaming tells me that you are choosing to stay inside.
Charlotte: (running to Michael with arms outstretched) Daaaaaaaadyyyyyyyy!
So I went back out and played with Maya, and Charlotte laid in Michael's lap while he worked. Win-win :)
As you can probably guess, I have no pictures of Charlotte playing outside! Plenty of Maya, though :)
