I just dragged the Little Princess up to her room to keep her from tearing the house apart. As soon as we arrived she penitently murmured, "Watch Goos Coos?" [Blue's Clues] To which my unmerciful reply was, "Sorry, you lost your chance."
It's funny how when you need something to say you fall back on the exact same things your mother used to say to you.
I told Mom that and she said, "Just wait, one day you're going to say to your kids, 'I hope you have a kid just like you.' "
Me: "Did you ever say that to me?"
Mom: "No, you were good."
Me: "You should have! Then I'd have at least one kid who sat down quietly and entertained herself!"
