Ian sits with Laurel and I eating lunch. Like most times before, he happily munches on his potato chips first. About halfway through, he briefly stops to inform me, "Mommy, when I'm done eating my chips, I'm going to ask you if I can have more chips. And I know you will tell me to eat my sandwich first."
He then returns to crunching away on his Pringles.
A couple minutes later, he finishes and asks, "Mommy, may I have more chips?"
I simply reply, "Ian, what do I usually tell you?"
He smiles and answers, "To eat my sandwich first."
I laugh and say, "Ok, Ian, go for it!"
