Time To Shelve That Surprise

| Related | December 5, 2015

(It’s nearing my husband’s birthday and I’ve told our four-year-old son we’re getting him a cupboard. But it’s a secret, so he can’t tell. Of course, I expect him to tell. A couple days later, we pick him up from school.)

Son: “Papa! Papa! You’ll see, you have a big present at home! I hope you like your cupboard! I mean… your shelf!”

(And on the day of the birthday, he can’t hold it in anymore:)

Son: “Papa! Open your present! It’s a cupboard!”
