Yesterday, I sent Ristow upstairs for some quiet time. I laid down to shut my eyes for a few minutes but could hear him up there playing the whole time. When he called down to me to ask if quiet time was over, I said yes but quickly remembered to ask him if he made a big mess in his room. Yes, was the reply and I told him he could come down after he cleaned it up.

A few minutes go by and I hear his door shut and he comes back to the top of the stairs. I ask him if his room is clean to which he responds "wellllllllllllll............I closed my door so you couldn't see it." I totally burst out into laughter, I could totally remember that logic as a kid and it just made me smile. I guess that logic has been used occassionally even now if someone pops in for a visit and certain rooms aren't picked up, I just close the door. How funny that I thought he was being a clever kid and he probably just saw me to before. wow, just thought about that right now.

After I helped him clean up his room, we moved right into another crazy moment as he locked himself in the bathroom (wanting privacy) and couldn't get it unlocked. I had to take the door knob apart, which he thought was rather cool, peeking through the hole.
It is never dull or boring with a 4yr old.
