This morning Beth came into the kitchen and asked for candy. She wanted the candy from the parade a few weeks ago. I told her she couldn’t have candy until she ate her breakfast. I said “When your Cocoa Puffs are gone, you can have candy.” That little you-know-what went into the parlor, fed her Cocoa Puffs to her father (who didn’t hear what I said) and then came and asked for candy!
She got it because she did comply with what I said (the Cocoa Puffs were gone), but she got told that won’t work next time!
