Mom Guilt

Whenever Staley plays with her princess figurines with Grammie, she always wants to play the same scenario.  Staley is the Ariel figurine and Grammie is the Prince Eric figurine.  In this little scenario, Ariel is Prince Eric's mom.  Staley always wants Prince Eric to fall down and get hurt so he can't talk.

Grammie (as one of the other figurines):  "Ariel!  Ariel!  Prince Eric is hurt and he can't talk.  Come quick.  You need to help him."

Staley (as Ariel, the mom):  "I can't right now.  I'm too busy."

So Ariel's child gets hurt so badly that he can't talk, and Staley thinks that the appropriate mom response is to calmly explain that she can't help him right now because she's too busy.  Ouch!!
