Bear: (Climbing onto the recliner with me carrying the Christmas puppy toy that barks.)
Me: (Squeezing the dog to start it barking) Sweetie, don’t drop the toy
Bear: Ok Mom (drops the toy)
Me: (Leaning down to get the toy) Bear, I just told you to not drop the toy
Bear: (Taking the toy back) Sorry Mom (Drops the toy on top of Betsy) Mom! Betsy took my toy!
Me: (Reaching down to pick the toy up off Betsy’s shoulder) Bear, one more time and you are following the toy.
Bear: Mom, that’s no fair! (Turns his head so it looks like he dropped it again)
Me: (Leaning down to make sure the toy didn’t hit Betsy)
Bear: (Holding the toy by the tip of one of the antlers) Ha Mom! I fooled you. (Drops toy) Uh-oh.
