"....And in the middle of negotiations, you break down."
A dinner conversation:
Bubs: Momma, I want a snack too
Me: You need to finish your sandwich
B: I don't want to, I want some strawberries
--15 minutes of negotiations--
B: the only way you are going to get me to eat that sandwich is if you give me a strawberry. A STRAWBERRY!!!
M: The only way you are going to get a strawberry is if you eat your sandwich
B: mmmmmMMMMMMMM! (with accompanying angry face and subsequent stomping off to her room)
--5 minutes later, a return to the conversation--
B: The only way you are going to get me to eat my sandwich is if I can eat a strawberry
M: You need to eat your sandwich first (I get up to put the strawberries away)
B: Don't you do that!! Don't do that!!!!
M: I'm doing that
--I proceed to the fridge to put the strawberries away on the top shelf and a chase ensues
B: That's not where you put them before (stomps off to bedroom again
