maybe she's still under warranty

Caroline was being stubborn about doing something totally minor that I can't remember now. Something like picking up her toys or retrieving a water bottle from the floor. She stood cross-armed while I gradually went from a polite request to reminding her that it wasn't a choice and that she needed to do it.

She turned her back to me and said, "I can't. I mean it. I am not able to."

"You're not able to???"

She stomped and hollered, "My skeleton will not work, and I am just not able to!"

Hee hee! She didn't happen to watch "Sid the Science Kid" on PBS yesterday, did she? It was all about bones.
