Scene: I’m changing the sheets on the bed and trying to tuck in the corners which are not settling down. I ask papa to help a few times and he’s actively ignoring me. I’m repeating the requests.

G:Mama, dont get angry with papa, you HAVE to be nice to him. (Very predictable since he perceives even slight changes in tone from normal to irritation)

Papa looks up from his work with a smirk on his face, glad to have some 3 year old support.

G turns to him and says: And Papa, you HAVE to help mama, OK. Can you do that papa?

The expression on papa’s face was priceless at that unexpected lecture.

It was my turn to give the smug look 🙂 but i was too busy laughing.
