A new scam?
The kids have always had a thing for playing in the front yard. It must be a combination of it being “out of bounds” because we prefer to be out front with them and that they love interacting with the world/people who pass by.
There have been many times that we have said no to them asking.
The other day there was a new approach to asking that I thought was quite ingenious.
Luke: “dad, can I go out front to be in the beautiful sunshine?”
Dad: “uh, um, of course”
Sixty seconds later
Lily: “Dad, can i go out front and be in the beautiful sunshine?”
Beyond being charmed, the event solidified a belief that Luke and Lily contrive, practice there methods of getting what they want.
