Little: Can I have a cookie?
Mommy: No, not right now.
Little: But I really want a cookie!
Mommy: Sorry, we're not having cookies right now.
Little: If you let me have a cookie, I'll let you come visit me when I'm older and don't live with you anymore.
Mommy: How sweet of you. I hope you let me come visit you no matter how bad a mom I am.
