We must day "Yes Dear" more often than we realized because Alex picked it up and says it often. Today at the grocery he said "Yes Dear" to the cashier when she asked him a question. When we got home I asked him about having quiet time and he said "No Dear" even though he was tired. He fell asleep on his bedroom floor while playing.
Over the weekend John and I had sodas in the car. Alex asked for juice in the car, but we usually only let him have water in the car. I told him that he had to be 10 [years old] to have juice in the car. He said, "No 5." Is this the beginning of negotiation skills?
