Eli and I were searching for his football around the house. Well, mostly I was searching and he was pleading for me to find it.
“Mom- you are not looking in the right places!”
“What are the right places Eli?!”
“I looked in them already and it wasn’t there. “
After awhile he went outside to look in the “right” places. I spent another few minutes earnestly endeavoring to find it and then I poked my head out to see if he had any luck. Sure enough he was playing with said football.
“Eli! You didn’t tell me you found it. “
“Oops. It was on the slide. I forgot.”
Totally innocent smile.
