A Conversation...

...between my 9 y.o. daughter and me last night:

PG: Mom, can I ask you a favor?
Me: Sure, you can always ask.
PG: Don't say anything when you see my room, I know it's a mess and I don't need the pressure.
Me: Do you have a plan for your room?
PG: Yes, I'm going to clean it tomorrow.
Me: O.k.

I'm so pleased she can talk to me this way.

the conversation would have been more like...

Julia, your room looks fine, you don't need the pressure.

no, I need to clean it, it's messy.

no, really, it's not.
