Bargaining...

I don't think Chickie quite understands it yet...

The scene:

Chickie had finished his dinner - including all his veges, so that meant he could have a little 'something special' (we don't really do desserts in this house).

Chickie: Can I have a Tim Tam and two pieces of chocolate?

Me: How about a Tim Tam and just one piece of chocolate?

Chickie (in his best bargaining voice): How about just a Tim Tam?

Me (in a voice full of feigned reluctance): Oh alright then.

In the end he didn't even eat all the Tim Tam (sacrilege!), so I had the other half. Yum!

AS long as he didn't wolf it down and give you a tim tam rebate all over the living room carpet. What the heck is a tim tam? Doesn't sound edible...

He sounds adorable! I hope he understands bargaining by the time he is negotiating for salary!

I laughed at this! It is just the sort of bargaining Small Grandson might use!

HALF a timtam...that's almost unaustralian!

Give it a couple of years - he'll work you out.

Ha ha, that's funny. When it comes to chocolate Holly has fantastic negotiation skills.

Hilarious. I hope you ate the rest of the tim-tam - I would have.

I'm gonna google at tim tam to find out what the heck it is. Hopefully his bargaining skills improve but hey (!) at least it provides good bloggin' fodder.
