Remember when your mom told you, "One day you will grow up and have kids and I hope that they will act just like you are now!"! Well, evidently, it worked. And my mother is experiencing unspeakable joy over this fact.
Me: ::standing in the kitchen, cooking dinner::
Bear: Mommy, may I please have a cookie?
Me: Buddy, we are going to be eating supper in about 15 minutes.
Bear: So, can I have a cookie?
Me: No, because it's almost suppertime.
Bear: Well, can I have a yogurt then?
Me: Bear! We're eating supper soon! No yogurt.
Bear: Well....a popsicle then? I can have a popsicle?
Me: *sigh* Supper! 10 minutes!! No popsicle!
Bear: But I'm starving!!!
Me: Well, call CPS then because you are not getting anything before supper. Now, go play.
Bear:.........can I have just one piece of candy?
