Our PR/salesman child

“Mama, since I had hot chocolate for a snack this afternoon, I probably shouldn’t have any more chocolate today. Because too much chocolate can make my tummy hurt, right? And I doooooon’t want a tummy ache, so I won’t have any more chocolate today, Mama. That’s a smart decision, right, Mama? I should probably just have the sugar cookies tonight, instead.”

She’s good. Made it look like she was making a responsible decision, got me on her side, and then slyly snuck in the actual reason for this entire conversation – she wanted sugar cookies. Sure was a better approach than just asking, “Mama, can I have some sugar cookies?”
