Parenting, Take Two

This morning Epu wants to take Nutmeg into the bedroom to get her dressed, but she wants to go outside and color on the porch with chalk. She whines, and he starts pleading: "How about if I bring your clothes out here to the living room."
"You're letting her boss you around, honey," I tell him. "Don't give into her when she starts fussing."
So he tries again: "Honey, I know you want to go outside right now. But who cares?"
There we go.
