can you keep a secret?

Roman can't!

He wanted to color today. So I had him color a birthday card for Brad (birthday tomorrow).
We went over and over it - don't tell daddy about the birthday card until tomorrow. It's a surprise. Don't tell him when he comes home from work.
Insert Charlie Brown at school - wah wah, wah wah wah, wah wah wah. Cause I think that is what it is like when I talk to him half the time.
Daddy comes home from work. The first words out of Roman's mouth - you guessed it - daddy I made you a birthday card today! But doooon't look. (said all serious with his hands up in the air to stop him) It is in the drawer where mommy puts all her stuff by the bed, but doooon't look.
After dinner we went downstairs. Roman took Brad over to my bedside table and said dad doooon't look in there. That is where your birthday card is.
He went to play.
Came back a few minutes later. Dad come look at your birthday card, but only look a little bit. Just for a minute.
Brad told him that's okay I'll wait until my birthday.
But it's okay dad if you look for just a little minute.
Brad distracted him and didn't look.

Never a dull moment with three year olds eh!
