Toddler Torment

Proverbs advises parents not to be unnecessarily vexatious to their children. Sometimes, though, I just can't help it.

Smallest Weedlet: Mom, I need a wink.
Me: Wink, wink, wink, wink.
SW: No! Not a wink. A wink.
Me: Wink, wink, wink.
SW, tired of this joke, which he gets every time he's thirsty: Mom! Top tormenting me!
