Mean Mom

I had to get this little gem of a conversation down in black and white, so I can refer my daughter to it one day when she has her own children...

We were waiting in line to drop her off at preschool.

Lila: Mom? Can I climb out through the way back?

Me: Nope.

Lila: Awww, come on Mom. Some of the other kids' moms let them climb out the way back.

Me: Well, I guess other kids have nicer moms than you do.

Lila: (very disgruntled) Yeah. And that's what I'm going to be when I grow up!

Me: What?

Lila: A nicer mom... I'm going to say "Yes!" to everything my kids ask to do!

Me: Yeah, good luck with that.

It's always a good start to the day when your parenting is critiqued by the five year old...

Hahahaaha! This is a really good one to have recorded, guaranteed you'll be referring to it eventually!

I totally remember having a similar conversation with my mom :)
