Chris was grumpy because he wanted the boys to hurry up and go to bed.
Wombat attempted to cower behind my legs as he said "Daddy is very angry and I am scared! I want you to come and brush my teeth!"
I walked through to the bathroom with Wombat and said, "Daddy is not angry - SEE, he is not angry. He is just tricking! He is a tricker!"
Wombat promptly attempted to mimic me and pointing at his Daddy exclaimed with gusto -
"You are a CHICKEN!!"
Especially for my mondegreen luvin' friend : )
