A three year olds confession......


Last night I am at the computer playing a game...Andrew comes in, a look of horror on his face. He said. "I didnt do somesing." I said, " what didn't you do?". He tugged at my pant leg and said, "I show you." I followed him out of the bedroom and as we hit the kitchen I heard the oven timer going off. Cooper the loyal dog and scapegoat was right at our heels. Now Andrew got in trouble several days ago for pushing over the oven cleaning lever on the stove when dinner was in the oven. Then I couldn't get the darn thing off and dinner was burning. I did manage to set the timer so if it happened again it would only "clean" for two minutes. Andrew apparently remembered after the fact, that he got in trouble and he needed to do some quick thinking! I asked him, "Andrew did you play with this lever?' he said, "no, Coopa did." I said, " So Cooper used his hands to get up there and push the lever over?" he said, "Coopa not got hands." I said, "I know." ....dead silence....the three year old crumples..."Andewjackannen ( Andrew Jack Allen) did it." ( I am hiding a big smile at this point. ) I sent him to the naughty chair for his time out but told him thank you for telling me the truth. He was pretty quiet and then I heard, "I need to tell you somesing." I said, "what? ..."I willy yuv you maga....." Man, I love this little guy!

That is lovely. Don't you pray that such openness would always remain?

OMG! You did really good managing to put him in the time out chair :) As an aunt to a 1 year old I would have been twirling him around the room and laughing out loud. (Good thing I must have been stricter with my 23 & 25 dds :)
