Today I was taking a nap when Ethan walked in:
Ethan: (whispers) Mom. (loud whisper) Mom.
I was ignoring him, hoping he'd give up.
No such luck.
Ethan: Mom? Is it okay if I drink hot chocolate in the basement?
Me: Because you leave your cups down there and it is a mess.
Ethan: But Zayd is!
Me: Then Zayd is in trouble.
Ethan: Will you tell him?
Me: No. I am sleeping.
Me: (groan) What?
Ethan: Is it okay? I am already drinking hot chocolate in the basement.
Ethan: I promise I won't spill it! I promise, I promise! I won't spill any.
Ethan: Well. Is it okay if I spilled a little?
Ethan: It's just a little dot. Just a teeny dot. You can't even see it. Okay? Okay mom?
Me: I'm sleeping.
Ethan: Okay mom! Thanks mom!
