Matthew: Mine!

Matthew was carrying something he shouldn’t have. Can’t remember what.

I said, "Matthew, put that down".
Matthew: "Mine" (Matter of fact)

Daddy: "No."
Matthew: "Mine?" (Are you sure?)

Daddy: "No."
Matthew: "MINE!!!" (Screaming like a teradactyl)

Daddy: "No."
Matthew: "Miiiine" (Whining)

Daddy: "No." Matthew: "mmmmmmmiiiiinnnneee" (Like Gollum from The Lord of the Rings…’precioussss’)
Daddy: "No." Then he just let’s it drop in slow motion. He had a very sad look on his face.
