Sophia: "Mom, can I play a bideo game?"
Me: No, Sophia, you can't.
Sophia: "Mom, My mind is saying; 'Sophia, your Mom is being annoying.'" My mind says you are wrong and you should listen to my mind, cause it says yes."
Me: No, Sophia, your mind is mistaken.
Sophia: "Ok, let's start over, Mom, my mind says you should change your behavior and let me play a bideo game, soooo yes is the answer."
Me: No is the answer Sophia.
Sophia: "Now my mind says you are saying no because you don't like me, so I don't like you either, so now we don't like eachother, see, yes will make us like each other again."
Me: Sophia, I do like you, but the answer is still no.
Sophia: "My mind says maybe I should try a potion on you to make you say yes"
Me: That would not be very nice.
Sophia: "Ok, lets forget all of that ok Mom?"
Me: Ok, Sophia no problem.
Sophia: "You need to understand, so let me start again. I have a plan, that plan is to play this bideo game and you need to see that there are more than two choices of yes and no, there is three choices... the other one is 'for a little while'. So if you choose the number three choice, we can both have our way. Do you understand me a lot better now?
Me: Oh, I see, I did not know about this plan. I do understand, but I like my choice of no, it is part of my plan to keep you smart and balanced.
Sophia: "Mom don't be ridiculious. I am already smart and even. There is no bad stuff in it, I just look for stuff. So, what do you think?
Me: I think you have proven your point, you definately are smart and... even. You also have very good reasoning skills.
LMAO she works every angle. ;)
