The Girl Child last night

My wife tells me that last night she told the Girl Child that, owing to the GC's less than stellar behavior, they would read only one story at bedtime that night and that they were going up to go to bed right now. The GC replied:

That doesn't really work for me.

I wish I knew where she picked some of these things up.

Did she try a plea bargain? My friend said that his boy bargained with them when it came to him losing his bottle "privileges". He said "How about I go to bed by myself at the right time, and you let me keep the bottle". They didn't argue.

Kids are great.

My 2 year old apparently scoldingly said "I told you" to my wife yesterday, after she asked whether he had "poo'd".

She did not try to bargain, from what I understand. She simply told my wife that her plan was not acceptable. That doesn't mean that she won, mind you, but she stated her point quite clearly.

That's priceless! Enjoy her now. I don't envy you the Teenage Years [cue screeching Psycho theme].
