'No' means...

ask a bunch more times and add please and maybe you'll get your way!! I've never been the kind of mother that caves easily to the demands of my children. And yet I have four children that after being told no, still insist on trying to get what they want by incessantly repeating themselves until I'm about ready to explode. And then, it seems they think that after all is said and done, if they add a whiney please, then I'll suddenly melt and give in to their wishes. I know that every so often it works, which is probably the problem. But that only happens like 1% of the time. I suppose I am just raising very optimistic children to whom I wish to tell, "No means no, dang it!!"
