What do children do at night ??

Yesterday was one of those days when Abhay just did not want to go to bed at night.

It was almost 10 pm and our energy levels were already running on reserve battery. But Abhay was zip zap zooming around the house like a bumble bee.

We tried all ruses to get him into bed - yet nothing worked.

Finally, in an effort to get the obvious answer out of the "horse's mouth", I asked him

"Abhay - It is so late at night. It is almost 10 p.m" (talk of subliminal messages)

"So Abhay - what do little children do at night ?"

Pat came the reply

"See the planets in the sky".
