Yesterday N-man and B-man didn't have anything to bring home from school. The teacher explained that they were working on a special secret project that they'd bring home later.
We made it to the car before the kids told me it was a Mother's Day present. I told them that was great, but they shouldn't tell me what it is.
By the time we walked in the door, N-man wanted me to guess which table he sat at to work on it. I know which teacher was helping him!
By lunch time, it was still on N-man's mind. He wanted to keep the secret, but wanted to let me in on it as well. B-man, while more staunch in his desire to not tell, had no problem with N-man giving hints.
"Mommy, guess what we made today," N-man said.
"I don't want to ruin the surprise. You don't have to tell me."
"Just guess," N-man said.
"Okay. A drawing."
"Nope. Guess again."
"No. I'll give you a hint. It's what this is in." He pointed to a large fake flower arrangement in a vase.
"A vase?" I guessed.
"No. It's a flower pot," N-man revealed.
"You weren't supposed to tell!" said B-man.
"It's okay, I didn't hear," I lied.
"IT'S A FLOWER POT," N-man yelled.
I got a case of the giggles then.
I guess the surprise is that he lasted a full hour before telling me!
