Honesty

So this morning Ralph (hubby) took all the clothes to the laundramat..sp?. He did this before church at 10. Well my little superhero who is 6, was up at 7:20 and had some granola too. All the girls were still sleeping beauties at this time. I thought this could be one of those father-son bonding experiences. So I asked my boy,"would you like to go with Daddy?" He replied most sincerely, "No' I can't." This puzzled me because he had no reason not to go, that I could think of. So I asked "Why can't you go?" and hs honest reply was, "'cause, I won't behave." Somehow that honesty erased, in advance any shannigans that he would pull that day. Well, he did end up going and strangely enough he did behave. I say strange because he does tend to misbehave (as most boys tend towards) and also because he just knew he would and then didn't. I am wondering if the confession prior to the opportunity to misbehave helped. I wonder if that would work with grown ups? Hmmm... Just a thought.
