The wisdom of a 3 year old

After a long day lesterday, Divya went down for her last nap before bedtime and I hurriedly cleared up the house. I folded up her blanket and put it over the sofa and Ashwin promptly pulled it down again. I lost it.
He did a stint in the naughty boy corner and said sorry, but I was still angry. I told him that because he wasted my time as I had to refold the blanket, I would not read him a book. Bless him, he didn't once object.
Still angry, I popped him on my lap and asked him why he did that and behaved like a naughty boy.
Because, he replied, I'm just a little boy.
I could use this reminder every single day my dear wise boy. I love you!
