Thank You Bugs Bunny!


So, I outsmarted my 5YO daughter today. The kids were getting ready to go outside and play in the water and the 5YO was refusing to wear a bathing suit that fit her. She kept bringing out swim suits that were more appropriate for her sister and I was getting really frustrated. I had picked up a suit for her which was the right size but she was insisting it was too small.
What did I do?
A little like Bugs Bunny arguing about duck/rabbit season, I took a different tact.
I said "I need to give this (holding up the new suit) to someone else, someone older, it's a bikini so it's too mature for you because you are 5."
It took her about 3 seconds to get that suit on.
Score 1 for mom and Bugs.
