Give me a break. Calm down. He is just a kid and a charming one at that. Can't you just appreciate it and laugh a little??
3-Year-Old Makes Compelling Argument for Cupcakes for Dinner
Ah, to be 3 again. That magical time when the juice is flowing, the toys are plentiful, and, if you’re Mateo Beltran, the only thing standing between you and dinner full of cupcakes is your unwavering mom (aka Linda).
We may not really understand the nuances of this precocious kid’s argument (something about grandma and his toys), but he sure is persuasive.
Watch the video above to see if Mateo finally gets his way, then consider hiring him to be your lawyer.

P.S. We kind of wish someone would give us “pow-pows in the butt” whenever we try to eat cupcakes for dinner. Maybe that’s the aversion therapy we need to kick our diets into gear!
The reason he calls her Linda is because once at a theme park, the family ran into a lost child that did not know the names of his parents. Linda and her husband were afraid this could happen to little Mateo here, so they taught him their names. If anyone wants to read more, head over to: http://blog.uberconference.com/
It isn't that serious folks! He was adorable. Lets not determine his future through your prism. Your kids try to get out of trouble too, they just aren't that loquacious. LOL
He truly is not respecting her (although he is cute) No means no and yes means yes----it gives a parent "credibility"----one's word can be counted on! And THAT feels good to a child. He keeps trying here---but I guarantee you that inside...what he's doing, doesn't feel good.
He must be a "mini me" of his dad..."Linda, Linda, Honey, listen to me." She has to be one strong woman to put up with both of them and the little brother who will probably follow in their footsteps. This kid is so darn cute that I would be choking on laughter while I tried to talk to him. I would have to give him the pow-pow before he could open his little con-man mouth!!!
I would have to agree with you. It's all fun and games but when you have a 14 year old that never grew out of that method of communication, there will be problems.
