Although I tend to show the better side of my kids on here, they are kids nonetheless. Just last night we were headed out to run some errands. The usual banter begins from the back of the car where Ivory, June, and Robyn sit next to each other.
Robyn: Mom! June is singing this song and I asked her lots of times to stop and she didn't.
Mom: June, if Robyn asked nicely, it is polite to stop singing. Since we are in a small space, let's try to get along.
June: She didn't ask me lots of times.
Dad: Should Robyn even have to ask more than one time?
June: Lots is FIVE!!
There you have it. In case you were wondering;
Once = 1
A couple = 2
Several = 4
Lots = 5
Unfortunately, I usually have to ask lots of times around here to get things done or quell arguments. But that is just the way it is.
