5-year-old Hayden: Hey, Mom, can I have some money?

Me: Not if it’s to play those video games.

Hayden: But, Mommmmmmmm. Pleeeeease?

Me: No. They’ll be seating us at our table soon. We don’t need to play.

Hayden: C’mon Mom, I just wanna play one game!

Me: Nope. No more asking. I’m telling you now, I am NOT putting money in those games.

Hayden: I know you’re not…I AM! Now, can I have the money?
