An Apology

Just now, Raizel came up to me, crying, and told me that Avi threw a train at her. I sympathized and we called Avi into where we were. I looked at him and said, "Avi, you threw a train at Raizel and it hurt her. Now you need to apologize." I thought that we would just be going through the motions and that I would be the one saying, in a tiny squeaky Avi voice, "Sorry, Raizel." But Avi looked at her, said, "Sorry." and offered her a hug. Then he brought her a toy. (Our normal post-apology routine is that you have to do a chesed ("kindness") for the person you wronged to help make up for it.) I cracked up. I guess he's seen his siblings do it often enough that now he knows the routine himself! He's a yummy little boy...
