Changing the rules?

I think we are doomed... Kevin is already starting to manipulate things to go his way through conversation at the tender age of 2 years and 10 months. This is how our conversation at dinner went tonight...
Kevin: Trying to get down from the chair without eating anything... after about 40 minutes at the table. A normal night for us.
Mom: 'Kevin, you know how it goes. You can't get down until you eat a bite of chicken. That's the rule.
Kevin: 'No, I get down now. That's my rule.
Mom and Dad: trying hard not to laugh and admiring that our deaf son is telling us his own rules.
He continued to banter back and forth with Dad... ultimately we won. It was really a funny conversation, though! Maybe he'll be a lawyer...
