  • Awww. poor little sweetie. I used to feel sooo bad for mine. I just cuddle them more, maybe jealousy? Is she hurt? Stomach flu is going around. It could be anything... she might just want some stuff from the commercial ads that pull on children's heart-strings all the time, and hear she can't get all that stuff, I know ours would always say, this is what I want, and the ads had them for like $29.99 for everything.

  • It's probably a stage. She probably testing you and see what she can get away with.

  • Don't let her boss you around with it...she's exploring her emotions to be sure.

  • My 3 year old is doing a pouty thing now too. I hope it's just a phase. I figure he's trying to see how much sympathy he can get from us and how much he can get away with when he thinks we are feeling sorry for him. We just try not to respond to it or change what we are saying or doing at the time, but it's hard because he's actually really cute when he does it! That's when he's not crying anyway. The excessive crying I know is because he's tired because his sleep schedule has not been good this summer and I know he's short on sleep.
