Me: "Mali, what would you like for breakfast this morning? Would you like a scone?"
Mali: "No, thank you."
Me: "Would you like some yogurt?"
Mali: "No thank you."
Me, getting grumpy: "Well Miss Princess, what *would* you like for breakfast today?"
Mali, brightening: "I would like an English muffin, toasted, with Gwendomama's homemade jam, please!"
Me, whipping out the jar I wheedled off of Gmama during this past weekend's Awesome Birthday Convergence because my girls laid waste to the two previous jars and spent days wailing for more: "You mean THIS jam?"
Mali: "Woo hoo! Wheeee! Yes PLEASE!"
