    Oh, it was so lovely of you to share this. What an incredible thing it is to see children processing feelings the way that they do, when they are “allowed” to do it freely without fear of repercussions. Thanks for all of your sharing here, so great to be able to connect with another mama on a mutually nonviolent level. I need more of this sharing in my life!

    ps, I just love how toddlers speak – her voice is so cute!

    Very cool, Natalie. I love how you give her the space to work all that out, and I like hearing how you talk with your girls.

    This is beautiful Natalie – I visit your blog from time to time and always walk away feeling really good.
