"Good, Mom!" Lindsay said. "I got an A+!"
"I will Mom! I promise!"
"Great! Now go get ready for the birthday party. Everyone's coming over for Jesse this afternoon."
"Can I have some cake now?" he asked excitedly. All the grown-ups laughed and Mom cut him a piece.
Jesse rolled his eyes. "You promised us cookies."
Rosa piped up, "Yeah, and you said I could have that bracelet!"
Lindsay fumed as she set down her teaset. "Fine! This is dumb anyways!"
Erika smiled and smoothed Lindsay's hair to the side. "Because they are sweetie. You just have to accept that you're older than them and are going to have different interests."
Just then, Rosa ran in. "Hey! I have to go home. Can I have that bracelet now?"
