The Negotiator

Actual morning conversation today:

Selah: Mom, nooooo, don’t come here. Stay there.
Me: OK, I need to change the poo poo though. Do you want to change it in ONE minute or TWO minutes?
Selah: Let’s change it in FIVE minutes.

How can you argue with that? I think I’ll bring her to work today since I’ll be negotiating change orders on the close-out of my recent flood control project. I’m pretty sure she’s ready to deal with some real dollar amounts here, and my Contractor might respond to her tactics better than my own.
