My 2 year old daughter told me today that she doesn't like me. At breakfast, right after I spilled a little milk on her while pouring it into her cereal she said "Mommy, mommy, I don't like you." You wont believe how shock I was to hear this coming from her mouth. When I started to dry her she said with a smile "mommy, I'm K," followed with a frown "I don't like you." I then ran to the kitchen and started to cry.
I'm afraid the accident with the milk has embedded this thought towards me. What can I do?

Give her a cookie.
Hey, your daughter is young, and I'm sure she loves you. Kids say the funniest things when they're that age, so don't worry about it.
