How to ask for what you want

The Play-Doh dentist kit that my daughter wanted…and (spoiler alert!) got.

The other day, I went to the car to wake up my 4 year old daughter. She had gone with her dad to do some errands while I worked, and fell asleep on the way home.

As I approached, curled up in her small arms protectively was a box. Not just any box, but a new one from Target. It was a Play-Doh dentist kit.

I smiled to myself knowingly, because I knew what this meant to her.
