She forgets.

She wants to play outside most days, but when her mother asks her what she wants to do today, the child responds, “What I do every day.” “But you don’t do the same thing every day,” the mother explains. “Then that’s what I want to do.” “What?” the mother asks. “What, what?” the child retorts. “Well, you do different things every day, so what do you want to do, today?” “I want to do what I do every day.” The mother hangs her head low and sighs a big sigh. “Okay, so what’s it going to be?” “What’s what going to be?” the child responds in mirrored frustration. Taking a figurative step back, the mother opts for, “Do you want to do something today?”
