Is it wrong to fight a five year old over office space?

My five year old HAS to set up an office wherever she goes. So, when we were at the beach a couple of weeks ago, she found the perfect place for her office complete with pencil holder, sharpener, notepad and even a calculator. Don't ask me what the calculator is for. I don't know.

She was up early in the morning writing her "story" even before she ate breakfast.

I like the view. Would it be wrong to kick the kid out of her office space so I can make it mine? ;0) The balcony is too small for the both of us. Oh . . . the sacrifices a mother makes for her children.

Suggest that, although you like her office, it has a major flaw. No running water. And too bad she didn’t think of setting up office in the bathroom. ..

Or tell her she is on vacation. Get off my friggen balcony and go watch Blues Clues or something.

Are you sure it's a calculator, and not a cell phone or a PDA or a remote control or a...?

Not to disparage calculators, by any means. I feel crippled without one, and am anxiously awaiting a replacement as I speak.

Great blog.
