{resources parenting} “We’re going shopping, Andrew. Do you have money?” “I do.” “Alright then. Buy me some candy bars.” “No.” “But you have to. I’m Mommy. I can eat whatever I want.” “You’re just pretending to be Mommy.” “I am Mommy. I’m not pretending.” “No you’re not.” “I’m in charge, Andrew. Not you.” She was right about that. I tried to think the way she did. “Oh yeah, I forgot that some monsters took my money. Sorry. Can’t buy any candy.” “No they didn’t. Monsters aren’t real.” Were they teaching rhetoric in pre-school? Advanced argumentation skills? Socratic method? Was she studying to be a trial lawyer? We were in front of the convenience store now. “Buy me a candy bar, husband.” Annie stuck her little nose in the air, grasping a purple sequined handbag with great poise. She wore red plastic heels and a Disney tiara. “Sorry. Monsters ... it’s out of my hands.” “There are no such things as monsters! Really, hm!” People were starting to stare. I bent down and whispered. “Let’s go back home.” “Not until I get my candy, husband. I can eat whatever I want.” “No you can’t.”
