Henry has finally picked up on the "Two Choices" trick.
You know the one, when your kid is acting like a pill and you give them two choices. They think that you are letting them be in control, but really, they are two choices that end up with them doing what you wanted them to do anyway?
Yeah, well now Henry is constantly giving me two choices.
The other night it was:
Henry: "OK mommy, you have 2 choices. I can go to bed and cry, or I can stay up and play on PBS Kids"
Me: "What if I don't like my two choices?"
Henry: "That is all, you have two choices, I am going to send you to your room if you don't pick"
Me: "OK, I think I will just go to my room"
Henry looks at me and cocks his head a little....
Henry: "Ok, I think I will go downstairs and play PBS Kids...Goodnight mom"
That was so not how I had expected it to play out...so I gave him two choices...
I don't need to tell you what they were, other than telling you he picked going to bed quietly and giving up his parental duties until he was old enough to have the authority to give two choices.
