Whenever Sophie wants anything she is 95% sure I will say no to, she likes to ask:
“Can I have this for my birthday?”
This happens at least a dozen times a week. And I always say yes. Because her birthday is in September.
This is probably a bad tactic.
I am more than a little afraid that I will be ruing the day when September rolls around and I need to pony up all the crap I said yes to in order to remove us from a given toy store or bakery without incident.
