Kaylee: (just before bed) "Mom, I'm really, really, really thirsty."
Me: "Ok, lets grab a cup and get some water because it's bedtime."
Kaylee: "No, I don't like water."
Me: "Well, you must not be that thirsty."
Kaylee: "But I AM that thirsty so why don't you just get me some of that punch."
Me: "Is that any way to talk to mommy?"
Kaylee: "No, but can I have some punch please."
Me: "No, you can have water. We don't drink punch before bedtime."
Kaylee: "But I do and we should drink punch before we go to bed, like a new rule."
Me: "I'm sorry Kaylee, that's not a rule that we're going to start."
Kaylee: "Well, I like to start that rule but I'll just go to bed for now."
Don't worry, I didn't give in. I just pondered the conversation she and I just had and stood there!
