me: S-O, hurry up and use the bathroom so we can go to your speech class.
S-O: If I use the potty, I get to watch a movie on my DVD player.
me: No, you are grounded from watching movies for today because you screamed in the house this morning. Now, go use the restroom please.
S-O: If I use the potty, I get to watch Dora on TV. (note: Dora was already starting on tv)
me: Arrgh, ok, you can watch Dora on TV, just GO USE THE RESTROOM!
S-O: Pause it please.
me: OK< it's paused...now GO!
(20 minutes later) S-O: Mommy I peed. I get to watch Dora.
I push play on DVR, the Dora song plays for about 30 sec...then it's done....it was a commercial!!! Snap!
me: Sorry S-O, Mommy made a mistake, Dora is not on...that was just a commercial. Anyway, we have to go now, we are late for school...come on get your shoes on.
S-O: Mommy, you said I could watch Dora. You made a mistake. I get to watch a movie in the car.
me to self: Uhhhh. What should I say? I need time. Buy some time.
me to her: Let's call Daddy and ask him. (knowing he was in a meeting and couldn't answer)
me: Oh, he can't talk right now...we'll call him after speech class. Now, get your shoes on and lets go!
S-O: Mommy if I put on my shoes, I get to watch a movie.
