The Art of Manipulation

My almost 3-year-old knows it well. Will put the kids in the car this morning for me to take Claire to MDO. The following is a conversation I had with Claire in the car on the way there.
Claire: "Mommy, can I watch a show?"

Me: "No. Let's not watch a show right now because we aren't going to be in the car for very long."

Claire: "My Daddy said I could watch a show."
Nice. Life as we now know it is over.

Yes, honey, daddy said!

and she does.
