"Aarav, keep that textbook down and go switch off all lights!!" I yelled as he ran to his room. On his way back out of the darkness, he stubbed his toe and cried out in pain after which I took the opportunity to explain to him that importance of keeping the room clean.
"So you see Aarav, if you take care of your things, your room will remain clean."
Aarav watched solomnly and nodded in agreement.
"So.... What did we learn today?"
Aarav, "Science lesson 5 spellings."
Aah. Duh. Boys. Facepalm.
Please go stub your toe again and I'll just say 'there there' and that's it.
