But I don't kick puppies

Elegant is often difficult to deal with at bath time. She doesn't want to stop what she's doing and doesn't really see the need to get clean. Every single day, we give her the 10 minute warning, the 5 minute warning, etc. All the same, the zero hour comes as a surprise to Elegant who then bitches and moans all the way up the stairs.

Last night was no different. In exasperation, I told Elegant she needed to get moving or she'd find herself in bed filthy, with dirty teeth, and not allowed to read before going to sleep.

Elegant's very calm response was, "I just don't get it Mommy. You're so nice to babies but you're so mean to big kids."
