We were not impressed with Celia's behavior this evening. She ended it by hitting her Daddy when he asked for a kiss and then asked him if he would cry. She wanted to hear him cry (he often fakes it).
The following was a conversation that took place while Celia was sitting on the toilet.
Mommy: There will be no stories this evening because you were not nice, you did not make good choices.
Celia: But I want stories.
Mommy: No I will lay down with you but no stories.
Mommy: You were not nice. Tomorrow, you need to listen to Mommy and Daddy and do what we ask you.
Celia (yelling downstairs): I love you Daddy. (then gives very loud kisses in the air). See Mommy, I am nice. Now I get a story.
Mommy: No, you do not.
The little manipulator. She knows exactly what she was doing!!
