‘Time to brush your teeth,” I tell Mister. We’re not even in the room yet and he starts to whine.
“No. Kay? No. Kay? NOKAY!” he fights as I put him on his stool and glop the toothpaste on his toothbrush.
“Yes. Kay.” I tell him. I scoop him up and hold him in front of the mirror. “Show handsome how you brush your teeth.”
“Hammum,” he repeats, giving his own reflection the “I know I look good” eyes. I’ve found Mister’s weakness…that I have to get rid of before his teenage years.
Perfect characters aren’t convincing. What weakness have you given one of your characters?
