Fooled Ya!

Last night as Jaydon was preparing to leave I reminded him that he needed to clean up "his" room (actually it is what was once my guest bedroom).  I had walked by earlier and it wasn't too bad, in messy kid room terms, but he had Legos and a few other toys strewn about.  And I didn't want to have to pick up the room after he left.  As he started down the hall he complained, "but I need help, I need you to help me".  Of course, my response was that I didn't make the mess.  But I started down the hall with him, running my mouth fussing at him and thinking to myself that I was going to have to go in there with him and supervise the picking up.  When we got to the door he flipped on the light and looked up at me (to watch my expression, I'm sure).  Imagine my shock....the room was perfectly clean and even the closet doors were shut.  Jaydon was laughing and exclaimed, "Fooled Ya".  I have a feeling that this is the beginning of a great sense of humor!
