I was sitting at the dining room table helping Caitlyn finish her lunch. Dylan had just put his plate in the sink and I asked him to go lay down on the living room sofa to look at a book, because we were going to have some quiet time just as soon as Caitlyn finished eating.
Well, he did go into the living room....directly to the T.V.
With my back turned to him, I said, "Dylan, I asked you to read a book quietly, not watch T.V."
"But mom", he insisted, "I want to watch Clifford!"
"No T.V. right now! I said we're going to have quiet time! I might let you watch some T.V. later this afternoon."
It took great restraint on my part to keep from laughing out loud at what he said next:
"Okay, but mom, just keep on arguing with me and you won't even notice that the T.V. is still on!"
Oh, he's a sneaky one, that boy!
