Sweet Girl has started using our countdown tactic to her advantage. So when we are getting ready for bed or getting ready to leave somewhere we do the countdown. We'll say five more mins, four more mins, etc. So she has started doing this as well. When asked to do something, say for example get up and out of bed in the morning. Her reply: five more minutes.
Or to get dressed...Her reply I'll get dressed in two minutes.
Sometimes she gets her minutes and sometimes she does not.
I should be afraid of what this will turn into when she's a teenager.
