The magic word

Such a word does exist. Once, it was the most commonly-used one in the parental vocabulary, but it seems to have fallen into disuse. It is short word, a simple word, but one of great power. Are you ready? The word is ‘no’.

I beg your pardon?

“Do you expect me to spend all my time looking after the children?” I hear you scream. “Don’t I get to have a life?”

Snapper-up of unconsidered trifles, walker of paths less travelled by. Advocate-in-Ordinary to His Satanic Majesty.
