Just as an example tonight my DD came into bed with me so we could read a story. Normally at bed time we go to her room and get her in bed, then I read a story and leave the room. As a "special treat" I let her come in my bed with me, use a flash light and read the story. I read it to her twice,and told her that was it, and it was bedtime but when we were done she flipped out and wanted more. I had to distract her to get her to forget and go to bed. I'm just having a hard time trying to explain to her that it is special and she can't freak out like that.
Another example is something like a cookie. She doesn't get food like that very often, so if she gets a cookie for a treat she gets mad because she wants more.
Is this something she will learn with time, or how can I help explain that it is a "treat" to her at this age (she is two BTW).??

Do you like Cafemom because your dh/so doesn't get jealous of you talking to...
