empathy comes in strange forms

These days Echo is VERY interested in matching like with like. In this photo she is organizing wire connectors by color, forming families. To her, if one thing is like another then they belong together. The big phone is the mama and the little phone is the baby and they should always be together. So at our house one of the best ways we can have empathy for Echo is to keep the little frying pan with the big frying pan, the kid piano with the adult piano, the big pencil with the little pencil. If we want our kids to care about another person’s feelings then modeling care for their feelings, no matter how silly they may seem to us, is imperative.
