Naomi, five years old, entered the kitchen. Her mom was in a different room – out of sight and listening range.

Naomi – “Can I have a cookie, please?”

Babysitter – “I don’t know. Go ask your mom.”

Naomi – (Quickly scans kitchen) “She’s not here. (Slight pause) So you’re in charge.”

Babysitter – “Nice try.”
