Mommy is in the kitchen. Bean is in the family room. Goobs is sitting in his highchair in the kitchen with Mommy. Bean has recently returned home from a sleepover at Mommom and Poppop's house.
Bean: (with raised voice from family room) "Mommy, can I have some chocolate chips."
Mommy: (also with raised voice from kitchen) "No you can't have any chocolate chips. It is 4:30. We are going to have dinner soon."
Bean: "But Mommom lets me have them."
Mommy: "I doubt Mommom give you chocolate chips before dinner."
Bean: "Can I have a popsicle Mommy."
Mommy: "No, nothing sweet until after dinner."
Bean: (with a whiny voice and much drama) "Oh but Mommom lets me have one."
Mommy: (can see this conversation is going no where) "Uh huh."
Bean: "Can I watch a video."
Mommy: (beginning to hate the nasal sound of her voice when she says the word no) "No you have watched enough tv today."
Bean: "Oh but Mommom lets me."
Mommy: "Well, I'm not Mommom. I'm Mommy and I am in charge here."
Bean: "Oh Mommy, I wish you were Mommom."
Goobs: (looks at Mommy, laughs) "Ma Ma"
Mommy: (to Goobs) "I hope that was a Ma Ma that just came out."
Goobs: "Ma Ma"
