09:18 am: in which Teddy makes his case
Teddy sidled up to me just now.

"Mommy? Could I please have my Bionicle Lego?"
"I don't know where it is."
"It's in the present closet!"
I'd forgotten that he won it in the raffle at the school fair last year.

"No, honey. It's too old for you and you'll just get frustrated."
"I can do Legos for over 8!"
"I know sweetie, but I have to work and you'll get frustrated and interrupt me, and that's not ok while I'm working."
"I'll get frustrated, but I'll suck it up and I'll learn to try harder."

He could not have made a better argument.

So? Did he earn the Bionicle Lego?

hell yes!

And he made a couple of major pieces before he left for school... without a PEEP. No complaints, no grumbling, no gnashing of teeth.

Wow! Would that all of us learned to articulate that!
