Me. Okay, how about this. We read the book once in Mommy’s room then we read it in Aria’s room. 

Aria: Ya! Ya ya…(strategic pause) … Maybe 

Me: (does she get “maybe?” This is new…) Um, so we read the book here, then in Aria’s room and go night night, okay?

Aria: Ya ya. Book here then Aria… Maybe

Me: 😑 Once in Mommy bed. Then in Aria’s bed. Okay?

Aria: okay, Mommy! Maybe. 

Whoa now. She’s seriously hedging!

Me: Here, then Aria room!!!

Aria: ya, ya 😁

Uh, I think I won??? Who knew “maybe” could be such treacherous vocabulary!
