Hard to argue with Toddler Reasoning

Today I tried to talk to Matthew about listening to his body. He holds his pee, especially when he's eating, and ends up doing the 'pee pee dance' and squirming all around until it starts to come out and then he'll finally say "I think pee is coming!!". Anyway I was trying to say to him, "You have to listen to your body; when it says 'Matthew, I need to pee.' we say 'okay!' and go to the potty." He seemed to understand and agreed.

About 20 minutes later he was trying to negotiate some dessert before he'd finished his pasta. So he says "Mummy, my tummy is saying, 'Matthew, I need some yogurt.'" and nods his head seriously. Hard to argue with that ;) hahaha.
