A Difference of Opinion

Ben didn’t want to take a bath. Negotiations were going badly. Finally, I resorted to the timeworn, last resort of the weary parent:

“Ben, we’re the parents. We’re in charge.”

But he has an answer for everything, our newly government-conscious boy:

“Actually, I’m the mayor of this house. I’m in charge.”

Ah, he may be the mayor, but he still wound up in the bath.

    but did you break down laughing first, or was it too annoying in the moment?

    totally broke down laughing, temporarily lost all authority, and then still got him in the bath! Score one for me.
