Cool! I just pulled off the Mommy version of the Jedi mind trick on Ryan. He's a good liar, he is. M wanted to play a certain game for the Leapster that had somehow "gone missing" and he looked me straight in the eye and said he had no idea where it was.
I just stared at him for a second and asked him point-blank if he was hiding it.
"No," says he.
"Because I will find out the truth." With just ever-so-slight an emphasis on the word "will."
"Weellll . . . I have been keeping it in my pocket. Here it is."
It was so weird. And cool! Oh I'm giddy and drunk on my own power! :o)
