Situation: Snack Smack
The cracker crosses her line of sight. At about the same instant the noise of parents reassuring her that Simon is reuniting her with the precious snack food breaks through the frenzy.
Success! Cracker returned. Sylvia smiles and instantly flips off the Fit Switch.
"See?" Daddy says, reassuringly, "Simon is a good big brother. He is giving you back your cracker!" She looks sweetly at dad and brother. Say, "Thank you!" Daddy prompts helpfully.
"I want to hit him," she says pleasantly.
