I'm not sure if this is a toddler thing, a diabetes thing, or a just plain Elise thing, but Elise has been telling me lately that her tummy hurts. It started out of the blue, and it isn't something we've said to her before, so I don't know where she picked it up.
What makes me wonder if it's manipulation is that she usually says it when she doesn't want to be doing something. Like if she's eating dinner and wants to get down, or when she's in her car seat. She starts to cry and says, "owie, tummy hurts, tummy hurts!" It doesn't last for long (maybe 5 minutes) and she stops when she gets what she wants.
But she does sound very convincing when she says it, so I don't want to write it off as nothing. Is this something any of your kids do (or did when they were younger)? I just don't know what to think of it.
