Tricky Business

Filed under: Stories — by mvmommy @ 4:31 am

I don’t know why it surprises me anymore when I find my eldest son doing things that I didn’t think he could/would do. Inevitably, however, I am always surprised.

Last night he came downstairs after being put to bed, and told us that he pooped. I figured that he had, and so started gathering the supplies to get him changed and put back in bed. He knows he’s not supposed to get out of bed, unless he poops, so I took him at his word. After getting everything ready, and starting the process… come to find out he hadn’t. He just wanted an excuse to come see us again. In fact he grinned “that grin” when I discovered his trickery – you know the one that says he knew it all along, but was hoping I wouldn’t catch on.

Tricky boy.

Today, at lunch time I caught Andrew swapping bowls of peas with his little brother. Justin had already ate half of his bowl… so I guess Andrew figured that it would look like he had, if he swapped the bowls. He knew he was supposed to eat peas before he got more strawberries, so he was moving the process along.

Quite Ingenious.

Later, I turned around to find him dumping Justin’s apple juice into his cup. They only get one cup a day – so I guess he figured he had to find another route to get more. When I asked him what he was doing, he just simply said “now there is more in my cup”.

There sure is buddy… I’ve got my eye on you.
