“Listen, listen, listen Linda!  Honey!”

Three-year-old Mateo is getting that cupcake.

You might remember video of the little guy’s discussion with his mom, Linda, over whether he could or could not have cupcakes for dinner.  When mom said, “No,” Mateo tried to be sneaky and ask his grandmother for the cupcake.

He got caught trying to go around his mom, and video of their debate over the cupcake went viral.
