Who Wears the Pants?
Apparently I don't... Emily made this abundantly clear while Jason was away last weekend. We were running a few errands before heading to a nearby park to feed the ducks (right next to the "Don't feed the ducks" sign, of course).
Emily: "You want to get a balloon today?"
Mommy: "Honey, We're not going anywhere that has balloons."
Emily: "You want to go to Red Robin?" (Red Robin gives balloons to little girls, but only if they eat their dinners. Lie #257.)
Mommy: "No, Sweetheart. We just went there last week."
Emily: "Welllll... Let's ask Daddy."
Seriously!? I don't get any say in this? We didn't go to Red Robin. Partially because we didn't have time and mostly because I was out to prove a point. We did, however, go to the mall. Nordstrom gives out balloons in their children's shoe department. I was Super Cool Mommy AND I wore the pants... for one whole day.
