Me: Young lady, you are not going to the yarn store with me today.
Me: No buts! I've been telling you to clean your room. Looks at this! This is not a nice way to treat your things.
G: This isn't FAIR! Your room is a mess.
Me: Yes, it is untidy but it is being cleaned on Friday and my nice things aren't all over the floor like this.
G: *groan* fine *pout*
Me: Just think Gracie, once it is clean we can make you a table for your sewing machine.
G: Really? YAY!
