She does not realize Momma has a long history of craftiness and successful sneakiness as a child and thereby is easily able to thwart her feeble rationalizations.
Momma continues to outwit the Bug's lack of logical progression.
ME: Who makes you food every day? Who washes your clothes and makes sure you have toys to play with?"
ZBUG: . . . you . . . .
ME: So I do a lot for you, huh?
ZBUG: . . . yes . . .
ME: So, do you think maybe you should reconsider not helping me when I ask you to help me?
ZBUG: . . . what I really mean is, I will help you now . . . . *picks up toys and candy wrappers*
We have this conversation at least once every other day. I know her little mind is grasping for a alternate argument where the outcome results in her successful non-compliance, yet once more she has failed to outwit the Momma...
