I’m really starting to master manipulative situations and am so proud of myself. Soon I’ll best mommy on a regular basis. I succeeded the other night.
I went into the kitchen and:
Me: Mommy, I’m hungry. May I have a snack?
Mommy: You can have a healthy snack.
Me: How about you make me a chocolate chip cookie?
Mommy: We don’t have any to make.
Me: What about the ones in the freezer?
Mommy: No, I’m not going to make a cookie.
Me: (Saying this with a big grin on my face since I thought I had Mommy manipulated into a corner because she said “make”) Okay. How about these instead? (I was pointing to a box of cookies on the counter)
Mommy gave in. Go me!
I’m getting much better at playing the game. I wanted the cookies on the counter the whole time but knew Mommy would have said no if I asked for them right away. Soon I’ll figure out the means to accomplish all my devious goals! 🙂
