how to get what you want

I walked into the room yesterday to find Lydia and Elizabeth using crayons from new boxes that had been put away for a rainy day. (Any of you parents can relate to just HOW quickly a child can destroy a new box a crayons!)
Yes, it was a rainy day, but not THE rainy day I had planned for these new boxes.
I asked them who said they could have them- and they said Daddy did. I kept quiet, did some work at my desk while overhearing Lydia say "See Elizabeth- it's just like Mr. Tony said. You have to find the person you think will say Yes, and ask them for what you want!" Thank you Mr. Tony. ;)
