a real life conversation:
Graham: Mommy, I want a treat.
Me: No, Graham, you can't have a treat after breakfast.
Graham: But, Mama, I want a treat from my pumpkin candy.
Me: Yes, Graham, I know what you want. You cannot have a treat this morning. Maybe after lunch.
Graham (said while throwing himself at my feet): BUT I LOVE YOU!
oh, the things they say!
