Eli (5 year old son) wanted to go out of bed for water- told him water and BED!
After 5 minutes I went to the kitchen and found him slowly sipping his water.
This is our conversation:
Me: “Eli time for bed”.
Eli: “Why did you come out?”
Me: “You were taking too long and I knew you were going to play with the magnets”.
Eli: “No I wasn’t”.
I looked him in the face
Me: “You wanted to take a long time drinking so I would forget about you and then you could play with the magnets.”
His eyes bulged,
Eli: “how’d you know?????”
Me: “I know everything.”
Eli: “What am I thinking now?”
I looked at him itching his bum
Me: “You are going to ask to go poo.
He was just about to shake his head no when I cut him off.
Me: “Not right now, you will wait until I’m heading to bed and then you will go play with the magnets.”
His jaw dropped.
Eli: “Mom? Are you a mind reader.”
Me: Goodnight Eli
And then I winked.
