I Never Get Anything I Want

This is a fairly accurate transcript of a conversation I had with my four-year-old last night, highlighting the futility of my existence.

Edward: “Daddy, can we have dinner now?”

Me: “Yes, I’ll go make dinner.”

Edward: “Can we have chicken nuuuuuggets for dinner?”

Me: “Ok.”

Edward: “Can I have ketchup?”

Me: “Yes.”

Edward: “NO!  NOT ON MY PLATE!  In a little bowl.”

Me: *sigh* “Fine, I’ll get you a little bowl.”

Edward: “Not the blue bowl!  The pink bowl!”

Me: “We don’t have a little pink bowl.”

Edward” *crying* “It’s not fair!  I never get anything I want!”
