I took Maxfield and Wyatt with me to the art center so I could attend a theater group meeting. Both kids were, for the most part, well behaved. They enjoyed the time running around the stage and seating area while I participated in discussions about budgets and marketing.
One of the galleries across the hall was hosting some type of event which piqued Wyatt's curiosity.
"Daaaad?" Wyatt whispered. "Can I go over there?"
"Noooo." I whispered back mimicking his tone and cadence.
"Whyyyyy?" he whispered louder.
"Becauuuuse." I said.
"Buuut I waannt tooo."
I could tell Wyatt may put up a loud argument in the middle of the meeting so I lied to him.
"They are having a class in there teaching kids how to eat broccoli. Are you sure you want to go?" I asked him.
He changed his mind pretty quick. I smiled, three-year-olds will believe the possibility of anything.
Two minutes later I could see the mental light bulb go off in his head. Eyes wide and smirk on his face, he ran over to me.
"Daaad?" he said in a whisper.
"Whaaat?" I mimicked back.
"Do they have a pizza eating class here?"
I laughed out loud. Three-year-olds will believe the possibility of anything.
