Emphasis

A recent conversation with Abby:

A: (out of nowhere) “I’m a princess!”

Me: (mentally blaming her grandparents) “Oh yeah, who told you that?”

A: “Daddy said, ‘Daddy’s the king, Mommy’s the queen, and Abby is the princess.'”

Me: (mentally apologizing to the grandparents) “Ahh. Yep, Daddy was right.”

I’m pretty sure my husband did not intend for Abby to leave that conversation feeling entitled. Probably he was hoping for the exact opposite reaction.

I’ve left quite a few talks lately having heard just what I wanted and not what was actually being said. Like mother, like daughter.
