In the interest of presenting a fair and balanced view, I give you the following anecdote as a counterpoint to yesterday's post:

On the way home from what started as a pleasant trip to Borders and ended with me chasing Allison down the self-help aisle, Allison let it be known that she was Not Happy*. As she was screaming in her carseat, Sean leaned over to her and said, "Don't be sad, Allie. Let's sing a song! Bob the Builder! Can we fix it? Bob the Builder! Yes we can!"

And you know what? It actually worked! She calmed down and started singing along with him.

* Might it have something to do with the fact that she hasn't taken a nap in 4 days? Naaaahhh.
