I've had my kids for a number of years now, in that time, they've learned that there are certain questions they can ask me and the answer will always be YES.
Can I have a snack? YES!
Growing up because there were so many of us, snacks were few & far between, my folks planned meals and you had to wait for those meals. I'm a snacking kind of gal, I eat smaller meals and snack in between. That lifestyle didn't work for when I was a kid and now that I support myself I am able to eat as I please. I do that with my kids. You're hungry, go have a snack.
Can we watch a movie on the big tv? They notice a slight hesitation from me and immediately follow up with Can we watch Pirates on the big tv? YES
I am a sucker for Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean. They have learned that I can't watch just one of those movies. I have to start with the first one and finish with the third. ( We own the 4th, but I don't have to watch that one).
Can I lay with you? YES
One day my girls aren't going to like me very much, it at all. I always allow them to lay with me in bed for a few minutes. That short amount of time gives us a chance to talk uninterrupted and most times I learn something new.
What about you? Are there certain questions you'll always answer with a YES?
