This lovely a.m., the following exchange went down at the breakfast table:
Mama Leisha: Lilly, you've had your warning. Now you have to give me your doll.
Lilly: But whhhyyyy?
Mama Leisha: You know why.
Lilly: Is it because I hit Camren?
Mama Leisha: Yes, and you stuck your tongue out at me. Hand me your doll, please.
*Reluctantly surrenders Cinderella, who's hair looks like a rat's nest without the elastic in it.*
Lilly: When will you give it back to me?
Mama Leisha: Remember, Lilly? You have to earn it.
Lilly, pouting: Well, how do I do that?
Mama Leisha: By playing nicely with Cam, and being respectful to your mama when she's talking to you. By being on your best behavior.
Lilly, sighing: Oh geez, Mom! That is going to take FOORREEVVVERRRRR!
I think someone needs to put ME in timeout, for the rest of the day!
