What goes on at night?
One night, it was getting rather late.
Only my 7 years old son and I were up. He was watching cartoons on TV and I rather firmly told him to go to sleep. He looked at me and asked very suspiciously,
“And what are you going to do when we are all asleep?”
Rather surprised by his question, I asked him what he thought I would be doing and he answered very seriously,
“Mmm, eat ice-cream or pizza without me?”
I could not help laughing. I wonder if this is why children want to stay up as late as their parents because they harbor the suspicions that once they go to bed, the parents have a party in which there are balloons, cakes, jellies and pizza?
I told him that I have the whole TV room to straighten up and kitchen to clear and he is most welcome to help me do so. He was sweet enough to help me clear away the table and then he stealthily started moving towards his bedroom.
I guess he figured out there was not going to be any cake gobbling session but I have a secret. I did eat a chocolate brownie when I was done cleaning.
I think I fully deserved it.

What a good idea, inviting kids reluctant to go to bed to stay and help you with your adult 'fun'.

It is amazing what these kids come up with. Good for you for eating the brownie!

That's funny. I'm sure as a kid I thought such ridiculous things too. Or maybe it's just the feeling of wanting to do whatever the adults are doing.

Not fair really. And then they say kids suspect parents and why not

Too funny! Kids have the weirdest and wildest imagination. I bet you felt a sense of relief when your son mentioned about the pizza and cake.

Kids are just like us, adults. Admit it or not we are also very suspicious most of the time.,
And may be...you were caught doing so that's why he's suspicious of you! :)
