Learning how to lie at a tender age.

We usually keep the bathroom door closed so that the kittens won’t drink the dirty bath water still on the floor, and so that Joshua can’t fiddle with my (too many) bottles of shower paraphernalia. The boy usually opens the door himself when I’m not noticing, and toddles in anyway.

I caught him in time today, to yell at him before he entered the bathroom.

“Joshua! What did Mommy say about playing in the bathroom?”

He sits on the floor and ponders, displaying a quizzical expression on his face.

“So? Did mommy say yes or no about playing in the bathroom?”

He wonders some more. And then responded by bouncing his body up and down — his way of nodding. WHAT THE HELL! And he had the cheek to grin at me after answering my question.

So I asked him again in a firm tone: “Are you sure I said yes?”

And then he started to cry. 😕 Yeah, you better be scared. Otherwise you get a spanking.
