JJ These Days

Every day around 7:00am or so JJ and I have the following conversation:

JJ: I need poscal (popsicle) Mommy.

Me: It's too early for a popsicle right now. You need to eat breakfast.

JJ (After some giving it some consideration): How 'bout orange poscal?

Me: How about toast?

JJ: How 'bout red?

Me: How about Eggos?

JJ: How 'bout green?

Me: How about cereal?

JJ: How 'bout purple?

This is a running dialogue between me and JJ for the rest of the day. I just alternate the type of food I want him to eat depending on what time of day it is. I am sooo tired of hearing about popsicles all day long, but on the other hand, they are a very powerful bargaining tool. We can pretty much get JJ to do anything we ask him to do if we bribe, umm I mean positively reinforce him with a popsicle.

That's hilarious! Popsicles have about been banned from our house because Lee and Wyatt demonstrate the same level of skill when it comes to cleanliness with those things...and I HATE cleaning up the little cut-off tops everywhere. :)
