We had steamed carrots with dinner tonight. Gregory's not a big veggie fan, so I tried hyping up the carrots by telling him about their "Secret Power" to help him see in the dark. He seemed mildly intrigued, but wasted no time trying to talk his way out of eating the 3 measly carrots on his plate.
Finally I gave him the option of eating all 3 or just 2. Of course he went for 2. So he reluctantly picked up his carrot. Then he grins. He breaks it in half and eats both halves at once. Then he announces that he ate 2 carrots. Nice try, Einstein.
