Child Genius

How could i constantly be outsmarted by my 19 month old son?  Exhibit A, the following conversation which was had with the young fella when attempting to feed him lunch.  Who would have thought he was such a discerning connoisseur?!

 

Dad:  Do you want some mashed vegetables for lunch?

Little Fella:  No

D:  Do you want some pasta?

LF:  No!

D: Cereal?

LF:  No!

D: Toast?

LF:  No!

D:  Yoghurt?

LF:  NO!

D:  Cheese?

LF:  NOOOO!

By now the scowl on the face was menacing, and i have rolled off just about every food in the house.  In my desperation, i thought I’d have a bit of fun with LF and throw in the name of a snack i know he loves.  I reasoned that he was simply screaming ‘no’ now because he was beyond all reason and having a real hissy fit.  Getting to him to refuse his favourite snack would be my last revenge!  And so i proceeded…

D:  Do you want any chocolate?

As i awaited an immediate and vociferous NO, i realised the game was not going according to script.  I was initally met with a strange silence.  From there the frown lines dissipated, the tears dried up, the thrashing monster transformed into a cheeky little prince.  As my son turned his head towards me, he fixed his gaze with twinkling eyes and a charasmatic grin.  Then his answer laid the final blow:

LF:  yeeeeSSSSSSSS!!

 

Doh!
