4 yr. old logic

This morning I was packing up N's bag for school and he saw me put in the ziploc bag of spare clothes.

"Mommy, what's that?"

"Those are extra clothes in case you have an accident at school."


Fast forward 3 hours to when I picked him up. He came to the door wearing ... his spare shorts!

"N had a little accident today", the teacher said to me in a low voice as I took his bag.

"Really? I can't remember the last time this happened. I guess it's lucky I brought the clothes today! heh, heh " On further thought, I considered that maybe it wasn't an accident after all. So as I walked out to the car I said casually, "So N, what happened today? Why did you have an accident?"

He turned to me with a look of surprise, "But Mommy! You said I had extra clothes for an accident!"
