No "Ifs" or "Ands", Though

This morning I informed Ellie that she would be showering after swimming lessons.  Knowing full well that I was going get an earful of why she didn't really need to shower today, that perhaps some other day, sometime in the vague and distant future would suffice, I added, "No ifs, ands, or buts, Missy."

She looked at me and very sincerely said, "Okay, Mom.  I wasn't going to say 'if' or 'and' anyway.  I might say 'butt', though, because it's more fun to say than 'bum'."

Alrighty, then.  As long as we're clear on the shower.


  1. haha. She has a point, though.

  2. True. The unfortunate thing (for me) is that she usually does.
