P: Yep....my other poops wouldn't come out.
M: Oh really? That's too bad.
P: Yeah, they said "No Parker, we will NOT come out. We are not here".
M: Parker, I know you want some of this guacamole, but you chose to eat gum instead - I'm sorry, bud, but you made your choice.
P: *crying loudly*...but *sob* I don't want any gum! I want guacamole and chips!
M: Well, you chose to have that gum even though I told you that you'd miss snack.
P: I'm sorry!!! I want guacamole!
L: *now crying too* Mom, he said he's sorry! He just wants guacamole!
M: Landon, I know, but he made his choice.
L: ......Parker, if you spit out your gum and repent I will share my chips and guacamole with you. Do you want to do that?
P: Yeah Landon!
M: (trying not to tear up - how can I say no to that) Ok Landon, if you're willing to share your chips and guac, then Parker can have some of that. I'm really proud of you buddy - that was sweet of you to share.
L: (grinning) Whatever Mom.
I couldn't believe he came up with that on his own - such a sweet moment!
