"Mom, can I play the play.station while you run Uncle T to work?"
No. You heard your dad tell you earlier that it's up to him.
"But I'll just tell him that you said I could."
I know you would love to throw me under the bus with him...
"It's what I usually do!"
I'm telling you No. If you tell him I said Yes than I will tell him that you are lying.
"I'll just tell you that you're the liar!"
(He is 11 and at almost 5 ft... he's a mere 5 inches shorter than me... He cocks his eyes in that look that used to melt my heart when his dad gave it to me as a teenager.... and I shake my head, hold firm to my No, and walk out the door...)
