The Negotiator

Ryan is a very capable negotiator.

Caroline and Ryan were having Oreos and Hot Chocolate. Caroline came into the living room and Ryan lingered in the Kitchen. Caroline had told him "no more cookies". He wandered in after a while and said "Can I have another Oreo?".

Caroline said, "No, I already told you you can't"

Ryan was ready with an innocent voice and a good question: "Oh, should I put this one back?"

Caroline was already almost laughing but said "No, give it to Daddy."

On his way over to me he took a Ryan sized bite out of it...almost like a compromise. Caroline made him spit it out though.

Yay for Caroline! Stick to your guns!! Although I do know, from experience, that you have won the battle; the war still rages on.

That's like Amber today: she saw that Kalle took off with a pack of gum. Not only did Kalle take some, but she gave some to Oakley. Amber made both of them spit it out. :) Good times.
