Out of the Mouths of Babes: You Crushed My Feelings

Sitting at the dinner table the other night, my husband asked my daughter why she had cried during her bath that evening. She told him, "Because I was sad." Wanting to know more, he asked her why. My two-and-a-half-year-old came back with, "Because you crushed my feelings." Both of our eyes popped out and we both threw our hands over our mouths trying to contain our laughter. He probed again, "Who crushed your feelings?" She extended her list, "Daddy, Mommy, brother and Yoyo (babysitter) crushed my feelings. But I am happy now."

Unsure of where she learned the "crushing" term, we sat there dumbfounded, a little entertained and relieved that she had returned to a state of bliss. I wonder if the Kimochi dolls have considered adding that emotion to their bag of feeling options.

My little sis used to say something similar in Spanish... "me rompises los sentimientos" sometimes she would say "feelings" instead of sentimientos. It means "You broke my feelings". XD
