Temper Tantrums

She may look harmless, but her mood can change in less than 2 seconds. Tonight I have had to reaffirm my administration's stance that we do not negotiate with terrorists. Her argument that she was not at all tired lost all credence when screamed in my face. When she realized her tactics were failing, she quickly switched to claiming an indifference on my part. Her demands? Being able to stay up and watch Gnomeo and Juliet. I held firm, and now she is asleep, less than 15 minutes after the battle began. Score one for Mommy.
