Haha, the power of a Mum to know exactly what her child is thinking! Good one. The least dark one I have seen so far 😉

Thanks for the comment.
As a child I suspected my mum could read my mind at times. As a teacher, I learned we just come to expect certain things often by their posture or they way they speak. It’s more intuition through experience than mind reading. 🙂

I love this, especially because I think my daughter lives it on a daily basis. I can see her mind working as she plots to achieve her goal, but she can never fool me. 😀

I love the scheming minds of the young. They can work their plots but their inexperience usually gives them away. 🙂

Oh I loved this, and especially that mum turned around and offered the cake anyway. Really lovely take on the prompt.

Parents usually get to know what to expect. With a cake freshly cooked, little feet would soon be heard. :0

Loved it, well done.

This was a little fun from the light recesses of my mind. 🙂

Love this, the realization of a 6yo that sometimes things come easily.

For a six year old, simply asking would be easiest but they sometime seem to think they are more successful with cunning plans. 🙂

Love it so funny! Now i want cake 🙂

I sometimes look after an 9 and 12 year old when my neighbour has to be away. The 12 year old especially likes to be around if I’m cooking choc chip cookies. 🙂

Beautiful as all the darker entries are, it’s nice to read such a cheerful take on it. I like the fact it didn’t occur to her that she’d get it anyway.

I’ve noticed some children want to maximise their success. This one may have thought asking would have led to a rejection so plotted to increase the chance of success. What a surprise teh cake came so easily. 🙂

Little children are always a source for cute stories. 🙂

Little children and their simple desires. A well written piece!
June 21, 2012 at 09:08
Little children can be so serious about the simple things in life. It’s what makes them charming when adults can see a bigger picture. 🙂

Oh such sweet innocence, love it 🙂

Children are a good source for ideas. 🙂

Yeah, I think like this sometimes and I’m over 40! Pity the calories aren’t so forgiving.

As adults, we try to rationalise why we do things. In this case, it’s likely to be, “Just one won’t hurt.” 🙂
