“MOOOMMMMM can I have some ice cream?” whines my two and a half-year old one bright early morning.
“No Max you cannot have ice cream at 8 am…”
This is the moment you see my toddler take three steps to the right and plant his big blue eyes in front of my husband.
“DAAAAADDDD can I have some ice cream?”
While this strategy is not smart due to lack of distance, it is a defining moment in our house.
The moment your child tries to divide and conquer their parents.
My two and a half years old is beginning to understand the idea that he can hedge his bets that we may not agree on something. He does not understand that this could bring on deep philosophical debates between adults.
