We don’t negotiate with terrorists

Me: Ok, Evan, Sean, Daddy, we’re leaving the park in ten minutes.

 

My husband: Sounds good.

Me: Evan, Five minutes!  Sean, five minutes!

 

My husband: Ok, five minutes.

Me: Ok.  We’re going!  Sean, Evan, one more time down the slide, and then we’re leaving.

 

Evan: How about two more times?

 

Me: No, just one more time.

 

Evan: Ok. Ok. How about three more times?

 

Me: No, just one more time.

 

Evan: Ok.  Ok.  How about one more time and four more times?

 

Me: We don’t negotiate with t- With boys.  One more time down the slide.

 

Evan: Ok.  Ok.  Two more times!

 

Evan finished going down the slide and started to climb up again.  I close lined him and carried him over my shoulder until I dumped him in the wagon. 

 

Me: Just one time.
