Smooth Operator

Yesterday while cooking dinner, my three-year old son comes up to me and says:

Him: Mommy, I have an idea.
Me: Yeah Baby?
Him: If you let me watch Cars [2-hour movie], I'll eat one piece of beef.
Me: How about if you eat one piece of beef, I'll let you watch Chuggington [30 minute program].
Him: No, the deal is for Cars. [Shrewd Negotiator this one.]
Me: Well, how about if you eat one piece of beef and the rest of your mac and cheese, I'll let you watch Cars.
Him: [I can see the wheels turning.] Yeah, ok.

I didn't let him see me, but I could not stop laughing.
