Its the eyes.
She has these big, blue eyes….. and she knows how to use ’em.
But it doesn’t work on me…
I have to admit, I almost caved, though, the day she didn’t want to wear this dress to church, because….
It makes my knees hurt, she said.
Then she hit me with the eyes.
And I almost, almost, for a split second, fell under her spell and burst into anguished tears over the pain and suffering I had caused my child by trying to make her wear a dress to church that made her knees hurt.
But I’m stronger than that.
