The art of apologizing.

Ady has inherited her mothers ability to apologize and not at the same time.

The other day she ran to Erin and ran into her hard. As Erin was complaining about the hit Ady said "I'm sorry I was loving you mommy."

Erin is good at apologizing without apologizing by saying things like "I'm sorry you feel that way", without apologizing for what she actually did.

It's funny how Erin can get around apologizing when she's joking, but when it comes right down to it, she is a pretty good person. Erin knows how to apologize. When she's wrong she will stop immediately and apologize for what happened. It's a good lesson to learn from.

If you do something wrong, don't wait to apologize. The sooner it happens the more likely that it will be recognized as honest. Get it out there and be sincere about it.
