Child # 3, a six-year-old boy, has lately been trying out his authoritative voice on me, declaring:
1. "You know the rule: I'm nice to you. You have to be nice to me!"
2. "Aba is older than you. We listen to Aba."
3. "You're not the boss of us. Aba is the boss of us."
Okay, youngest child of mine. I'll be sure to remember that when you come cryin' to tell me that Aba didn't let you do/have something that you wanted. Even "I'm nice to you. You have to be nice to me!" doesn't always work on Abbas!
