the fine art of negotiating

Last week, when we were housebound for the afternoon because of snow and cold, I let Jackson watch a Thomas the Train show on TV. When it was over, I turned the TV off and said, "That's all."

He must have then asked me about 500 times to watch another Thomas show. I tried saying '"no, " I tried cajoling him, I tried distracting him, I tried ignoring him.

Finally he came up to me, looked up at me with his big blue eyes and said, "how 'bout cooking show, Mama?"
