That's Not Negotiable

Q is really into bargaining these days. If we offer him four goldfish crackers, he counters with five. If I tell him we have to go home after we see two more bike riders go by, he'll ask to wait for four.

We've been talking about his upcoming birthday and that he'll have a cake with candles. How many candles?

Us: Three, since you'll be three years old, sweetie.
Q: Four!

Dude, that's not a bargaining point.

Ha, at least he didn't try for a higher number of years. Ian keeps trying for eight.

Ours is just being opposite all the time these days. grrr.

And the kittenpie girl? Shhh - I found her! I did a search for librarian images, and she was too cute.

Well, there's always "one to grow on," I suppose!
