Nipping to the shops, but first...

WHY is it when on Sunday mornings I ask the Young Wan to 'nip' to the shops to get the Sunday papers, she has to have a full face on.

Yesterday I asked her to run out quickly for me. The next time I saw her was about half an hour later, with a full made up face on AND her hair washed...

I thought she had been and gone and would have papers in hand. *Big sigh*

It is days like this when I really miss the 'I'll count and see how long it takes you' ploy, you know the one where they run off like mad fast wee whippets as you go '1. 2. 3. 4.' Normally at this stage they are out of earshot and you can resume whatever it is you are doing, only to restart when you hear them coming back.

I tried it recently but it didn't work anymore :(

LOL, I can relate to all of that. Out girls won't leave the house without makeup. And I remember well using the counting tactic when they were kids exactly as you describe.
