Lately, my son has been "outing" himself.
These conversations usually take place with us calling from the other room when he's been unusually quiet.
Him: I not doing anything!
Him: I not jumping on the couch!
See what I mean?
Of course I know he is surely doing something.
Him: I not going in the office! (as he's walking out of the office, which is off limits and usually locked - oops!)
Rick: Cooper, what was that? (from the other room, upon hearing a "thud")
Cooper: I not throwing anything!
Rick: What did you throw?
Cooper: I not throwing the dinosaur!
Sometimes you just have to laugh! I mean, c'mon, how can I punish him when he's being so cute??
