Reverse Psychology

During dinner tonight, I sat back and enjoyed this little discussion ...

Daddy: "Natalie, you need to take more bites of your pasta."
Natalie: "No"
Daddy: "Yesh" in a playful tone, mimicking her addition of the h at the end of the word.
Natalie: "No"
Daddy: "Yes"

Natalie: "No"
Daddy: "Yes"

At this point, I was about to intercede, but intrigue kept me quiet and entertained.
Natalie: "No"
Daddy: "No"

Oh, he's turning the tables on her right here!
Natalie: "Yesh"
Daddy: "No"
Natalie: "Yesh"
Daddy: "No"

Natalie: "Yesh"
Daddy: "Are you going to take another bite of your pasta?"

Natalie: "No"

So close!

Pretty impressive display of opposites, nonetheless!
