That tends to lead to spoiling... just a little bit.
After talking his way into a dessert with our friend Kelli, Canaan was pretty happy. His Noni was fussing at him a little, telling him that it really been too late for dessert, and that he shouldn't have asked for one. Kelli defended him, teasingly saying, "He hadn't had dessert yet, and he deserved one. He knows his rights!"
Canaan proudly responded, "Yeah, Left, Right."
Oh, what am I going to do with that boy?
At least he went to bed happy - and knowing his rights... and his lefts!
