While DD was out of the house, DS got into her candy stash, almost completely destroying it. Well, it wasn't that big to begin with, but still. Upon DD's return, I informed her of the terrible loss that befell her. DD, a generous and forgiving spirit, had the following conversation with her brother.
DD: DB, you can't take my candy without permission!
DS: I am sorry.
DD: This time I forgive you, but don't ever do anything like this again. (This child starts sounding a lot like her mother. Poor kid.)
DS: Okay. (momentary silence). You got more candy?
No, I don't think he was thinking about asking permission this time either.
