My Dearest Children,
I love you. I really do...but there are a few things you need to know.
1) I don't like it when your face is so close to mine.
No really, I can see how sad you are without you getting 2 inches away. Getting nose to nose with me will NOT make me suddenly give in to your demands. I love you SO MUCH but I can love you and cuddle you with a few inches of space after a sweet baby kiss.
2) I'm not trying to ruin all of your fun in life.
The FEW rules that I have are usually for safety. I know it's super fun to scale the dresser...but it's not safe and you just don't seem to realize that. I get that you didn't get *really* hurt the last time you fell doing something I SPECIFICALLY said not to...but that doesn't mean it's a safe activity.
3) When I tell you not to eat something it's REALLY for your own good.
I know you want Scooby Snack treats and bread and gummy snacks and a myriad of things that you've eaten before but now can't have. I'm SORRY! I know you feel better (you act better) when I'm strict with your diet. When you're old enough to make the connection we'll talk again. Until then, however, I control your foods.
4) There is no Parent Eating Monster in the bathroom
It's okay to let Mommy and Daddy go alone...really.
