Today during my visit to the chiropractor I was asked if I was a strict mom. I was about to answer "no", until I was reminded of the following occurrence:
Isaac (holding onto something imaginary): I have a flashlight.
Me: Oh, you do, huh?
Isaac: Yep...I got it in your eyes!
Me: Give it here. We don't shine flashlights in people's eyes.
Isaac (sullenly handing me the nothing): I'm sorry. I won't do it again. Can I have it back?
Me: Nope. I'm going to keep it for a while.
...My kids don't stand a chance.
However, Isaac did have a raspberry-filled, powdered sugar-covered doughnut for lunch, so I guess it's a give and take situation.
