At least not that easily or often.
I am more of a maybe, we'll see, or not now, later type of mom.
And let's not forget my favorite, no.
Annelise knows this, I mean, let's face it, she's a sharp cookie and is 8 and has known me for seven years.
Not that I never say yes, but she knows who she should asks first around here if she is jonesing to get her way.
However, the sheer joy that results when I do say yes to something is even sweeter.
Maybe she appreciates my yes a little bit more.
Since it's a rare bird and all.
Case in point:
She asked for cinnamon toast for an after school snack yesterday.
And then almost fell over when she saw me get the skillet, butter, bread, sugar and cinnamon out.
Totally made her day.
Of course I may or may not have made a piece for me too.
Maybe I should say yes more often.
Are you a yes mom?
