While Debi was gone, I found myself bribing Toren on occasion with cookies. While I’m sure that’s not shocking to most parents, and I am disappointed in myself, the part that cracks me up is just how well Toren behaves in order to get cookies. Here’s a clip of him just after he finished a cookie. He takes a drink, wipes his hands, then very politely and sweetly says, “cookie” and “more.”
He’s not even 2 and he knows how to manipulate with his mood and emotions!
