Sometimes I just don’t have the kind of energy it takes for these discussions:
“Little Brother, in 5 minutes it’s time for your bath.”
“In 5 minutes you will come upstairs for your bath.”
“How many more minutes?”
“How about now?”
“You want your bath now?”
“No. If I do, I’ll get my pajamas on, and then I can’t play Knights and Archers.”
Apparently a blanket sleeper with dinosaurs on it is not dignified enough for either role. But he does have some blue camo-printed pajamas. Perhaps when I remind him about those, he’ll change his tune. Either way, he’s still getting that bath.
