I'm in my office and I see some little chickadee coming down the stairs in her oversized Chicago Bears sleepshirt.
I look at her; she knows she'll get a point taken away for coming downstairs after she's been put to bed.
How does a seven-year-old Diva work it so she actually GETS a good point instead of having me take one away from her?
She looks at me with those hazelly-puppy-dog eyes, through her ratty blonde hair she rarely brushes and she says this in a whispery hug-me-forever voice:
"I just felt like I needed some more extra love."
