My daughter related the following vignette, with the wry comment that Covid has blunted some of her social skills in casual conversation. Recounted with her permission,.
Exasperated mom of a two-year-old
Mom: It’s so frustrating. All day long all she says is, “No! No! No!”
Emma: It’s never too early for a girl to learn to say no.

VERY cute! I find it extremely amusing when my daughter complains of the frustrations with her children that I had with mine. Do I feel a bit of somewhat satisfying revenge? Of course not…that would be terrible for me to say. Actually, YES!!!
Oh my, yes. There is a teeny spark of payback in those moments!
