A chess player in the making...

So tonight, Pam and I have some of her delicious soup, which Quinn refuses without even looking at it. We have our dinner, She has some ice cream. I set her up with her tea, Quinn comes out from his room where he's been playing. I get out some ice cream, too. He looks at me. He looks at the ice cream. He opens his mouth. You can almost see the wheels turn. He closes his mouth. He waits a beat. And he says, "May I have some dinner?"

After I set him up with a bowl, he eats a token few bites and, you guessed it, asks if he can have ice cream for desert.

Of course the funny thing is, he decided he liked the soup after all--because he went back and finished most of it off after eating his ice cream.

I remarked to Pam: "Now that was thinking at least a move ahead..."
