I just had to share this because it's too funny not to!
L was in the kitchen rustling around while I sat in the living room. She said this...
"Mommy! Can I ask you something...and have you answer me? And I promise....promise....promise that I will listen to whatever you tell me. If you tell me no I will be alright with it. So?....."
She wanted gum right after she had finished her breakfast this morning. How could the kid go wrong starting out a conversation like that? The phrase, With friends like these who needs enemies, comes to mind!
