Kailey decided she wanted to sleep with about 10 stuffed animals at bedtime tonight. "No," I told her, "pick 2."
She protested, "I want them ALLLLLL."
"Two or none," I replied (this is my version of "choices" that they talk about for toddlers).
She glared at me.
"Two or none," I repeated. "Which do you want?"
"Two," she replied, considering her pile of stuffed animals, and selecting the dog and the ballerina. Then she grabbed her Jessie doll and said, "this one is for YOU, Mama" with a triumphant look in her eye.
I laughed and let it be three.
