Junior is at the stage where he believes everything is open for negotiations, bed times, play dates, summer classwork, going to McDonalds...

Today's negotiations went like this:

Me:  Read 5 more minutes
Junior:  2 minutes
Me:  I said 5 minutes
Junior:  Come on!  2 minutes
Me:  10 minutes
Junior:  Okay.  5 minutes

He still hasn't grasped that childhood isn't a democracy, it's a benevolant dictatorship.

Or that he was negotiating lower than what you were! LOL

Nope, I got my 5 minutes, it actually started with him asking "Can I be done now?"

Got a good chuckle out of this. My two are in college now and we still negotiate. What I don't get? GG and I have never given in which should mean they finally "get it" and stop. Right?
