When I went to pick Lucy up on Monday she told me that she was going to a sleepover at a friends house. I explained that there would be no sleepover on a Monday night. She then got extremely angry at me for telling her that she could not go to the sleepover. It took me forever to try to explain that I was not saying she could not go, I was saying that the sleepover did not exist. “It’s like telling you that you can’t climb a tree that isn’t there” I told her. “I’m not limiting you, I’m just telling you that what you want to do doesn’t make sense.” I’m still pretty sure that she eventually let it go just because she figures I was too confused about the whole thing.
