Patoochiecake Adventures: The Negotiator

Crazy MikaEarly this evening Mika and I had a really funny conversation. Yes, I can actually have conversations with her already but they are usually more like negotiations rather than actual story sessions. Hehehe! Mika, brush your teeth first THEN you can watch tv. Mommy, jello BEFORE take a bath. You get the picture, right?

This evening, right before dinner, she wanted milk. Since I knew it would spoil her appetite, I tried to convince her by dangling her favorite part of any meal: RICE (yes, she is a rice-lover like her father!) Unfortunately, this didn’t work. So I bargained.

Kris: Let’s eat first then I’ll give you milk.
Mika: No, dede first Mommy. Then eat wice.
Kris: Fine. (finally giving in … but only a little bit) But only 2 ounces okay?
Mika: No. (complete with furled eyebrows)
Kris: Huh? How much do you want?
Mika: One only. Ayaw two.

Hahahaha! It sounded so funny! and she flashed a HUGE smile like she absolutely won! I guess she thought I meant 2 bottles of milk. Hahaha! So anyway, we both kept our word. I gave her 1 ounce of milk and she ate all her food during dinner. Beat that Kevin Spacey! 😛
