Katie and the Candy Store

Sycamore Elementary, 3 p.m.

Katie:Mom, can we go to the candy store?
Me: No.
Katie: Why can't we go to the candy store?
Me: Because I said so.

The Big Red Bomber, 3:10 p.m.
Katie (muttering from the backseat): wish we could go to the candy store.

Home, 3:15 p.m.
Katie: Can I have some ice cream?
Me: No
Katie: I don't want an ice cream sandwich. I want regular ice cream.
Me: No

The Laundry Room at Home, 3:30
Katie: Do you have five dollars?
Me: Why?
Katie: So we can go to the candy store and I get some ice cream.
Me: (insert your favorite expletives screamed at a high decibel).

LOL! Sounds just like my son. He counters everything I say with a "why?" and seems to think even though I've said no to something he can surely change my mind! *g*

kids, they just either 1) try to wear you down or 2) try to hit you up when you're really not paying attention because your head is in your book *g

Kacey, my kids sense when I'm weak or distracted. They are like a group of lions with a three-legged wildebeest.
