Scene: 2am. Mommy trying to fall asleep in bed. Isaac wide awake next to Mommy. Daddy fast asleep next to Isaac. Dog at end of bed, snoring.
Mommy: Oh man, the dog keeps farting.
Isaac: What did you say Mommy?
Mommy: Oh, nothing.
Isaac: (quiet for some time … obviously thinking … then…) Mommy, you know that when you say something and then you say that you didn’t say something … well, that is called lying.
Mommy: (smiling) You are right son. I just said that the dog was farting.
Isaac: (putting hand to my face and looking into my eyes) Thanks Mommy. Thanks for not lying.
