Angie, sometimes I have to reject your request for french fries because I don’t want to clog your arteries at the age of two. Sometimes I have to let you cry in your crib and not rush to pick you up because otherwise you (and I) won’t get a good night’s sleep. Sometimes I have to turn down your request to go to the zoo because it’s too cold outside and I worry about your health.

Angie, sometimes I have to say no – but trust me: disappointing you hurts me so much more than it hurts you.

So much more.
