Do You Know What An Accident Is?

So I am cleaning the house this morning and I can hear the boys running around in the living room. The next thing I hear is Tayden screaming/crying and Boston saying in a panicked voice (probably because he didn't want to get in trouble, "shh shh you're ok....ah...it was an accident..." So I come out and ask Boston what happened and he said, "I hit Tayden....it was an accident." So I proceed to put him in time out and tell him that you don't just hit someone on accident. After his time out was over I went and sat down next to him and asked him if he knew why he was in trouble. He responded
B: "Cause I hit Tayden."
M: "Do you hit your brother?"
B: "No, but I said it was an accident mom.....Do you know what an accident is? Do you know what that means mom?"
Seriously did he just ask me that?
M: "Yes...do you?"
B: "Yeah it means you don't get in trouble."
Hahahaha....I then tried to explain to him that you don't get in trouble unless it really was an accident, and you didn't mean to do it. That you did not do it on purpose.
M: "Did you mean to hit Tayden...did you do it on purpose."
B: "I did it on purpose mom..."
Well there ya go....too funny.
B: "But he was really bugging me mom...."
Still trying to justify it and find a way to get out of time out....Boston you are a clever boy.

Haha--especially funny because Elliott thinks the same thing--as long as he tells me it was just an accident he thinks he won't get punished! :)
