“Mom, let’s pretend you are the bad queen who hates everyone and I’m the princess.”
I hope Ivy came up with this new game because of the many books and movies that involve a bad queen.
I fear it was actually because of the mood of her mother.
On a positive note, so long as I use my “bad voice” she’ll happily do all sorts of chores around the house while I threaten to lock her in the basement if she doesn’t.
Being the “Bad Queen Who Hates Everyone” is actually rather cathartic.
