Ever try to rationalize with a three-year-old? Don't even go there, right? Well, you certainly wouldn't want to face off with little Mateo, who's pretty much ready to sit the Bar exam.
Watch (courtesy of Elite Daily) his well-versed defence of his right to eat a cupcake.
“Linda, honey, just listen,” he says over and over. For the record, "honey" is mom Linda Beltran.
Obviously, someone has been mimicking his parents having discussions.
Apparently, there is a calculated reason for him calling his parents by their names.
“For the most part we are still Mommy and Daddy, but when he is serious and wants to make sure we are paying attention, we quickly become Linda and Kenneth,” said Beltran.
I feel the same way about chocolate, Mateo.
Do you ever let your kids call you by your first name, or is it always disrespectful?
The video of this little cutie turned our hearts to goo.
