Here is a conversation between my five year old and me:
"What is that?"
"A piece of candy."
(with hand held out) "You have had too much candy today. If you keep eating it, you will get sick! Give me the candy."
(candy is reluctantly handed over) "What are you going to do with that piece?"
(shoulder shrug, fist clenched tightly around candy)
"Don't throw it away! Can I just have that one last piece? Then I won't eat anymore, Okay?"
"Okay. But after this no more, mom!"
I have created a MONSTER!!!
