I Love having conversations with Avery just to hear what comes out of her mouth most of the time. But, I especially Love negotiating with her when we are talking about how many minutes she can do something. Like how our conversation went this afternoon:
Avery: Mommy, can I play on the computer when we get home??
Me: Okay, for a little bit
Avery: How long Mommy?
Me: 10 minutes
Avery: I was thinking 30 minutes
Me: No, you can play for 10 minutes though
Avery: Well, I was thinking of something like a number that has 1 and 3 in it, I'm assuming she meant 13?? Never know for sure :)
Me: Well, you could play for 12 minutes then
Avery: Eyes light up, look of happiness that she won this battle, but if she only knew
It will be such a bummer when she actually gets the whole time thing but for right now I'll enjoy my upper-hand :)
