Analytical Thinking and the 3 Year Old

I'm constantly watching and listening for developments in my kids.  You just never know what they might be learning and from whom!  Today was quite entertaining.

From the back seat of the minivan, I hear, "Mommy, I'm thinking about having a bad idea".

Me-Really?  What's your bad idea, Little Dude?

Him-Um, I'm thinking about spilling my water all over my seat.

Me- Really?  Are you thinking about it or did you already do it?

Him- Um..uh, uh, uh, I'm thinking about it.

Me-  Okay, well, don't do it, okay?

Him-  Okay.

Are we turning a corner here?  Is he really (FINALLY) thinking about things before he does them?  Like his actions really do have consequences?  If so this is a BIG corner folks.  My 3 year old might FINALLY be growing up.  And I thought this day would never come.
