"Mommy, I want to wear the dress Claire gave me,"
"No Meredith, your dress is fine. Do you want a snack before your nap?"
"Yes Mommy, can I have cereal?"
Bowl of cereal poured. Mommy goes upstairs to get something. Comes down to find Meredith, the table and floor, covered in cereal, and Meredith crying, "I need a new dress; this is wet."
"Meredith did you do this on purpose?"
"Yes Mommy, I sorry, but I need to wear Claire's dress," she says through the tears.
Well, now Claire's dress and cereal are not part of Meredith's life for 3 days.
