That's my usual response to anything she says lately. Maybe it's because the girl has lived on this great green earth for nearly six years without registering the word "No" directed towards her. She is able to, somehow, magically manipulate any person into a "Yes", failing to even entertain the idea of a "No", leaving even the most seasoned psychologist shaking their heads wondering what just happened. She's a complicated creature.
She's my go-big-or-go-home girl. No is just not an acceptable answer.
Which is how she came home with not only a reindeer antler headband from Old Navy, on a recent shopping trip with my sister (with very strict orders from me to only allow her one thing), but also came home with a dress and tights to match. "How can you fight with someone that creates a solid argument - YOU NEED TO BUY EVERYTHING BECAUSE IT ALL MATCHES." my sister, another victim of Feenie's, asked.
It doesn't help when people give into her master plan. Like the balloon artist at a family restaurant that created her a "wiener dog with a belly full of meatballs that was holding the sears tower". Her request. And he did. And she was beyond thrilled! I wanted to scream HIDE THAT MARBLE, PLEASE DON'T INSERT IT INTO THE WIENER DOG BALLOON AS A MEATBALL IN THE BELLY AND PLEASE HIDE THAT MARKER THAT YOU WILL HAVE TO HANDPAINT THE WINDOWS ON THE SEARS TOWER BALLOON; BECAUSE, LOOK AT THE LINE BEHIND YOU - ALL OF THE MOMS ARE GIVING ME THE EVIL EYE JUST WANTING A BALLOON SWORD!
Go big or go home. "Oh Feenie!"
Me: Your birthday is coming up next month.
Feenie: I know!
Me: What should we bring for the school treat?
Feenie: A wiener dog cupcake!
Me: Brilliant idea. (Searching Internet for wiener dog cake toppers to plop on a store bought cupcake)
Feenie: But the cupcakes should have wiener dog rings!
Feenie: And not only should they be wiener dog rings but they should GLOW IN THE DARK!
Me: .... (Searching Internet for glow-in-the-dark wiener dog rings as cupcake toppers)
Feenie: Also the glow-in-the-dark wiener dog rings should be holding balloons.
Me: Feenie, honey. Nothing like that exists!
Feenie: How about glow-in-the-dark wiener dog rings holding presents?
