Pavlov's Bell

Before I begin the story, you must know that Marielle has a comfort food. It is the easiest, most convenient comfort food a parent could ask for -- water. Anytime she cries, be it a tantrum, an owie, or hurt feelings, she asks for water. Just a few sips and her tears subside, breathing returns to normal, and she moves on from the tragedy at hand. It's a pretty easy fix.
Now on to the subject of the post, Pavlov's Bell. This morning Jenna took a spill and started crying loudly. I went over to pick her up and Marielle ran to the fridge to get some water. She closed the fridge and said, "Whoa. I was really thirsty mom." Hmmm? Coincidence? I think not.
