First Debate

Just had my first civilized debate with my kid. I think I lost. Either way, we (he) decided that we (I) need to do a better job of sharing the toothpaste tomorrow. Geez, he's just like his mom. He's not even 2 1/2 - He just learned to form sentences.

Actual Transcript (remember he's 2 years and 4 months old):

Ian: Kyle, Please give me the toothpaste. Please give me the toothpaste. Give that to me.

Kyle: You know... I was holding the toothpaste and you just took it from me anyways.

Ian: Er. Uh. (trying not to smile)

Kyle: I had it and you grabbed it from me. That was naughty.

Ian: You're right. It's naughty to grab things from people. But when Daddy asks you to do something you've gotta do it.

Kyle: You better believe it.

Ian: What? You better believe it? (in disbelief)

Kyle: Yeah. You better believe it.

Kyle: Kyle and Daddy will share the toothpaste better tomorrow.
