Look, there are gullibles on the ceiling...

I remember a better time when children were easily convinced of anything. Today, times have changed. While I was trying to trick my son into taking a bath we had this conversation:

Me: James, the turtle is talking to me. He says you need to go take a bath.

James: (First of all woman) he's my turtle, and he does not talk to you.

Me: Yes he does and he says you need a bath.

James: Rolls his eyes No Mommy, turtles don't talk!

Me: Yes they do.

James: Mommy, MY turtle says you need to leave me alone. I don't need a bath!

When did I loose the upper hand?
