The Negotiator

Anyone with a toddler-almost-preschooler can tell you that with greater communication comes greater bargaining skills.  Conversations in our house look more and more like this:

Miles: Drink, pease?
Me: Sure. Do you want milk or water?
Miles: Hmmm. Juice or mook? Juice!
Me: Juice wasn't an option.  Do you want milk or water?
Miles: Juice!
Me: Milk or water?
Miles: Mook.
Me: Here's your milk.
Miles: Straw, pease?
Me: Fine.  Milk with a straw. . .

Suddenly, everything is a discussion.  You have to wear pants. I wear shorts?  Time for bed. Five minutes?  It makes my head spin.  And this is just the beginning! :)
