Katie: Mommy, may I have some milk?
Me: Just a minute, honey.
Katie: (on the verge of crying) But I’m thirsty, Mommy!
Me: You can wait a minute.
Katie: (with scrunched up face and tremoring voice) Noooo, Mommy, a minute is toooo loooong.
Me: Katie, I just want to finish this. Count to one hundred, and I’ll be done.
Katie: (almost wailing) But I don’t know how to count to one hundred!
