“Why are crying, Little One?”

“I ‘tan’t do it!”

“It can be very disheartening when we can’t do something. What are you trying to do?”

“Rides my bicycle, so I, Eli, cans be a big boy. But I ‘tan’t do it!”

“You can’t do it YET. A little persistence and more practice will get you there in no time.”

“I’s so sad in my heart. I wants to ride my bicycle. I twried and I twried and I twried.”

“And you will try again. It’s okay to be frustrated and to get down when you have worked hard and still can’t do something. When you’re ready to try again, would you like for me to help?”

“Yes, puhlease. You’s be my helper.”

“I would love to be your helper.”

“T’anks, my Mama. You’s my heart helper to not cwry anymore. You’s a good helper.”
