A Cynical Parental Observation

Don't you just love how your children say "But I don't WANT to..." with all the conviction that it actually matters what they want in a given situation???

Yes. I have begun telling my kids, with a matching earnest certitude, no sarcasm: "It doesn't matter what you WANT. This is what we are doing."

We also hear a lot of "do I have to?"

I'm learning (and struggling) to tune out, "But it's so BORRRRRING!" whenever I ask J to do something.
