Why do I consistently attempt to rationalize with my toddler? You would think I had realized by now that it just doesn’t work. My morning as I washed dishes, went like this:

NB: “Watch Curious George?”

ME: “Yes, baby, after you finish breakfast.”

Small tantrum ensues and now in a whinier version than before:

NB: “Watch Curious George now?”

ME (slightly more agitated): “Not until you eat your waffle.”

NB: “Watch Curious George?”

ME (in a somewhat still calm manner, carefully describing what I just spent the last two minutes repeating): ” Remember what I just said? Not until we eat breakfast, okay?”

NB: “Watch Curious George now?”

Insanity has found me, and it’s not even 8 a.m. What would happen if this kid knew about waterboarding tactics? He would be dangerous. And effective. VERY effective.
