rue the day

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.

    As long as she doesn’t specify which birthday, you should be safe 🙂

    Giggle. Additionally, she might stop asking this question if you stopped so easily saying yes?
