Are your children practicing the art of manipulation yet? Here's a little story I'd like to share.

I made it a journal post. Here's the link.

  • The other day, my son wanted a snack. Since I'm trying to cut back on his cracker and cookie intake, I give him a choice of two fruits whenever he asks for a snack. This is what happened:

    "Mommy, can I please have a snack please?"
    "You can have applesauce or grapes."
    "Mommy, you need to say candy!"
    "You need to say candy, Mommy."

    I let him have a dum-dum pop. It was too cute to resist.
