I love that small people are really rubbish at keeping secrets. They are even worse than me. Big man proudly announced to Daddy exactly what we had got him for his birthday. It wasn't that exciting anyway but even the vague element of surprise was extinguished.
Today however, it is middle man that was trying to keep a secret. As I picked him up from preschool I gave him a big hug and asked him if he had had a good day.
"Yes, I have made you a teacup card Mummy!"
Just as he said it you could see the penny drop. It was meant to be a secret. I knew exactly what he meant as I had received a teacup card 2 years ago from big man for Mother's Day.
"Oh no I haven't..... I have made a Valentines Card today!" he lied badly.
I smiled and told him that he was super organised. Talking of which, I must sort out a Mother's Day uummmm Valentine's card too!
