(8pm last night)
Jack: Mom I'm SO excited for the Easter Bunny!
me: Okay, but you have to be asleep for him to fill your basket
Jack: I'm going to sleep right NOW! (feigns sleeping)
me: (sneaks out of the room and grabs his empty basket so I don't have to sneak it out later)
(2 minutes later) Jack: MOMMMMMMM!
(Dennis runs into his room)
me: What happened?
Dennis: He wanted to know why his Easter Basket disappeared. Way to go.
me: (lurching upstairs) humphf?
Jack: (loud whisper) The Easter Bunny came already! I peeked!
me: Do you have to go to the bathroom or not (yawn)
Jack: Yeah. Can I open it?
me: No, now go back to bed
(I tell Dennis it's his turn)
Dennis: (lurching upstairs)
me: What did he want
Dennis: Just had to pee and went back to bed
me: whew (back to sleep)
