Who's the Boss?

I have been having a terrible time getting Ruby to eat dinner lately. She really wants to be in control of what she eats and reminds me she doesn't want to eat anything that I cook, only waffles and corn dogs. So I of course have been cooking more and forcing her to eat what I cook by providing it as her only option if she is hungry. So during this giant power struggle the other night, Ruby insisted that she was the boss of me. I think she thought I would go for it. So it went something like this:
Ruby- Mom, I am the boss of you!
Me- Okay, but I am the big boss and I say eat you dinner!
Ruby- I am the little boss and I say eat candy!
I immediately started giggling and we both had a good laugh. She ate it later with her Dad when he came home. She is hilarious. She keeps us laughing!

That is what I am talking about. I love that kid. Its is amazing to me how quickly kids figure out they don't have the power, and how badly they want it. Ruby is my favorite niece. By far. :)
