Jesus knows!!

Our little Jorden likes to sneak plenty of items into bed with him at night. That wouldn't be so much of a problem if 1.5 hours later he wasn't still in there playing with his "special sheep" and "green race car from Poppa and Mimi". Last night, I heard Isaac calling for momma shortly after putting them down. I went in to check.

Isaac: Momma, Jorden has toys in his bed.
Me: Jorden, do you have toys in your bed?
Jorden: Nope.
Me: Are you telling the truth?
Jorden: Yep.
Me: (knowing that one must be very concrete with little boys) Are there any toys in your hands, on your pillow, under your pillow, wadded in your blanket? Are there any toys whatsoever close to you?
Jorden: Nope.
Me: (thinking, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm) Ok, well, just remember Jesus knows the truth and He also knows if you are telling a lie. Good night boys, I love you.

As I am walking out the door...
Jorden: Momma, does Jesus know that I climbed out of bed and was playing with toys and jumped back in bed?
Me: Yes, son, He knows (closing the door and laughing hysterically with their daddy)!!!

This is a tactic we use at our house too - it really convicts them! I love that he was so set on no...until you were leaving the room :)
