Ask a Three-Year-Old: How Do I Deal With My Jealousy?

by A Three-Year-Old

Dear Three-Year-Old,

I have had the misfortune of having to meet five of my boyfriend’s exes. Some of these women are my peers whom I encounter frequently in social settings. Although I recognize everyone has a past, I experience various negative emotions when I am forced to encounter these women. How do I deal with this gracefully?



Dear Green,

Do you have apricots in your shoes? Yes or no, Mommy? No apricots? No, you DO have apricots in your shoes! I put them in there yesterday! But don’t worry, it’s okay, Mommy. Take off your shoes, and then you shake-shake-shake. Like this: shake-shake-shake, shake-shake-shake, shake your bod-ette! Shake your bod-ette! Shake your bod-ETTE!
