Be smarter than your children

Trinhity wanted to have marshmallows today for a snack. I relented and gave her a handful. She asked, "Can I eat as much as I want???" When I told her no since it will make her sick, she responded, "But I'm ALREADY sick."

Well, technically she's right.

She ended up not eating all of the marshmallows and left them for her brother. I asked her why she didn't finish them and she responded, "I didn't want to get a tummy ache. Tai Tai will get a tummy-ache but I'm not."

At least it sank in....

I am going to have to remember this when my son gets old enough to bargain with me. Kids are surprisingly smart sometimes, and I have been out smarted by my baby brother before (16 years younger than me).
