lest I forget (update)

Well, Mr. Maxwell has out-smarted his dumb ol' mommy. Last night when I tucked him into bed, I reminded him that he said he was going to start listening to me tomorrow. He assured me that he remembered.

Today arrived. We made it until nearly 11:00am before I asked him to do something that he didn't want to do. "Maxie," I said, "you promised me you were going to listen to me today, remember?"

"No," he said, with an ear-to-ear grin on his face, "I said tomorrow. It's only today." If I didn't know better, I'd swear he had that planned all along.

How old is he! He sounds like a little smart one, only I think at times they all act like that.
And it's hard not to laugh when they do these cute things!
