"No. Do you want an apple?"
"MORE COOKIES!!!" (reaching for cookies)
"MOOOORE COOOOOKIEEEEES!!!" (still reaching for cookies)
Why do I have to say no 15 billion times before he accepts that the answer is No? And why does he act like he doesn't hear what I am saying and continues to reach for the cookies?
All rhetorical questions, of course. For the answer, we all know, and my husband reminds me of often, is "Because he is 2."
