This is an oldie but goodie, inspired by a comic someone posted on FB today.
My son was about 4 years old. He was very annoyed with me.
"What's wrong?" I asked.
"I know what you and Daddy did last night."
It was Thursday morning. The morning after Hump Day. Other families have their traditions, we have ours...
ANYHOW, I became a little nervous.
"You do?" Thoughts were racing through my head on how I was going to respond to what I thought was coming next...
"Yes." He was still mad.
"What do you think we were doing?"
"You had a party without me."
"A party?" I asked.
"Yes." Still mad.
"Why do you think we had a party?"
"I know you were up later than me," he said unhappily.
"Yes, we were up late. We stay up later than you every night. "
"But you had a party last night. I know."
"You do?" Now I'm worried....
"I saw the popcorn bowl. Why would you have popcorn without me?!"
"Yes. Mommy and Daddy had a popcorn party. I am so sorry we didn't invite you."
And from that day forward, we started locking the door.
