Little kids are great liars. They'll look you straight in the eye and say they've brushed their teeth already when they haven't. They'll try to convince you that the fourth book you've read was actually only the second book so that they can get two more books out of you before bedtime. They'll come running out of the bedroom WAY past bedtime and say, "I gotta tell you something." When you ask what it is, they'll stare at you blankly. They'll say they can't sleep without mousey or luck bear or blankie or anything else that isn't in the immediate area just so that they can stay up for a few extra minutes looking for mousey or luck bear or blankie. They'll make you swear that you'll never have kids of your own, but then they'll look so darn cute when they're sleeping.
