(Two days ago, near the breakfast table.)

Ingrid: (Stands near Iris wearing pink felted slippers.)

Iris: (Pulls at flower ornaments on slippers, tries to put in mouth.)

Ingrid: (Yells.) NO, IRIS! (Bats Iris’s hand away.)

caro: You need to find a gentler way to tell her no. You could just step back and say…

Ingrid: (Interrupts.) Here, Iris. (Sits on floor and removes slippers one at a time, handing each to Iris.) You can play with these now, and then I’ll have a turn when you’re done.
