Thing 1 to Thing 3: Let's hurry and go upstairs really quiet so that Ima doesn't hear us. Shhh....let's not tell Ima we're going to use all that stuff.

The whole time she was saying that, Thing 3 was looking at me smiling.


Thing 1: I don't have my unicorn down here. I need to go upstairs to get it.

Me: Okay.

Thing 3: I need to go get my frog, too.

Me: You can wait until Thing 1 comes downstairs. 

I turn away and Thing 3 does a very exaggerated tip toe towards the stairs.
