Reading vs. Sleeping

Lennon comes around the corner an hour after his bedtime

Lennon: Mom, I need some encouraging 
Me: For what?
Lennon: to help me stop reading at bedtime and go to sleep
Me (trying to keep a straight face): oh so you were reading when you were supposed to sleep?
Lennon: Yes.
Me: I love that you want to read, but what is bedtime for?
Lennon is mimicking a reading motion
Me: Umm no bedtime is for what, Lennon?
Lennon mimics the sleeping motion
Me: so now go back to bed and try sleeping instead of reading.

Lennon returns to his bedroom 

Have you ever heard of a child telling on himself? Oh, he makes me smile!
