Reasoning with a nearly 4 year old...

Today I suggested to the kids that we eat lunch on our deck. Porgie decided that this was a subpar plan, and suggested that we eat in the front yard instead. The following conversation ensued...

Porgie: "Let's eat lunch in the front yard!"
Me: "But we don't have anywhere to sit."
Porgie: "We can sit at my Elmo table!"
Me: "But I don't feel like carrying your Elmo table outside."
Porgie: "I'll help you!"
Me: "But we don't have an umbrella to keep the sun out of our eyes."
Porgie: "I'll wear my sun visor!"
Me: "Okay."

She's got an answer for everything. It is easier to just go along with her crazy plans.

Sometimes the best moments of our lives are the ones we don't want to initially go along with.

I bet you had a fabulous time!
