A conversation with my three-year-old son this morning, when he was eating a donut (something that rarely happens):
Me: I don’t want to hear any whining, though. Whiners don’t get donuts.
Son: I’m not a baby. Babies cry like a baby.
Me: That’s true. It’s okay to cry sometimes, though. Just not when eating donuts.
Son: Yeah. Babies don’t get to eat donuts.
Me: No, they don’t.
Son: I like donuts.
