The Sooner They Talk

The sooner they talk back.

The Boy: I want cherry tomatoes and cookies for dinner.

Me: You can have cherry tomatoes, but no cookies.

TB: I WANT a cookie.

Me: After dinner. Not for dinner.

TB: I've got news for you Dad (inching closer to the cookie jar), I AM having a cookie.
That's an advanced phrase. I almost gave him a cookie just for saying. But if you're wondering, no, he didn't get cookies for dinner.
