just told 8yo that she can’t go to the neighbors this weekend to wash their truck [yes, it was her idea and she was excited by it! don’t ask] because something came up.
8yo: tell me what – what came up?
me: it’s private family stuff for them.
8yo: puhleeeeze tell me! i’ll do anything! i clean the toilet!
me: no, it’s none of your business and i’m not telling you. end of story.
8yo: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I CLEAN THE TOILET EVERY DAY FOR LIKE 2000 YEARS!!!!
