I was talking to Micah on the phone this evening as he was on his way to catch a train home when Simon insisted he had something to tell his father. I handed him the phone.
“Dad, do you know what? This afternoon Oliver climbed on the table and knocked over the vase with the flowers and spilled the water and Mom yelled and put him on the couch and cleaned it up and then she was happy again.”
Busted. I took the phone back.
“He missed the part about how, as I was cleaning up, Oliver was going to climb on the table again. I put him back on the couch and then when I was done cleaning up he came over and gave me a hug.”
