Must get this down so I never forget. A new phase of my child's life has begun...negotiation. And it is FUNNY!
Ryder to mommy: Can I have a candy please?
Mommy to Ryder: No honey, I'm sorry, but you didn't eat any breakfast. Candies are treats and are only for after a good meal
Ryder to mommy: Don't say no mommy
Mommy to Ryder: I'm sorry, but the answer is still no. They make us sick if we don't have good food first
Ryder to Mommy: But mommy, 1 candy doesn't make us sick. 2 candies will make us sick. I only want 1 candy. So can I have a candy please?
The facial expressions and gestures that went with this was hilarious. He wasn't having a tantrum, he was quite calm and logical...lol. And holding up 1 finger and 2 fingers at appropriate times. Absolutely priceless. It was very difficult to explain with a straight face why the answer was still no candy...lol.
