On being 3

Finn was in his room playing with his Thomas set. Malo was in the hallway playing with a bird, a lion, an inflatable hammer and a fire-engine - and being peripheral visioned by his very attentive mother sitting on the computer. When hurtling from the bedroom came Finn's toy basket (quite large) and walloped Malo.

At the speed of light I picked up my yelling youngest and demanded of Finn "what happened to Malo?". The reply - "I kicked the toy basket at him". Oh. Well. When someone is that honest it is quite hard to know what to say. What age do they start lying?

And yes, I've learned my lesson and will play on the floor with the children at all times. No more blogging. Never. Mmm.
