Soooooo unhappy

Tovina is a shockingly even tempered child. So much so that when she gets upset we can usually just talk her down and everything is okay.
Usually.
There there are the rare afternoons like today when nothing is okay and we are not really sure why.
"I DON'T WANT!"
"What don't you want T?"
"I DON'T WANT IT!"
"Okay. Then you don't need to have anything. Feeling better now?" And all this said with an impressive amount of calmness, lack-of-sarcasm, and no smirking.
....pause...... quiet.........thinking.......... TEARS!!!
"I DON'T WANT IT!"

This may have something to do with getting roughly 23 hours of sleep rather than her usual 54 hours over the last 3 days because of some fun-packed, cousin-filled, indoor waterpark weekend... but why make excuses?

I don't want it either, Tovina.
Do you have even the foggiest idea of what "it" is?

Actually I sort of felt that way myself this morning. Which, let me tell you, freaks the cats right out.

Maybe she doesn't want her evil mommy taking pictures of her with tears and snot all over her face. Ever think of that?
