A Teachable Moment

I still put a diaper on Đán at night even though he’s already five years old. Unlike his older brother, Đán is a deep sleeper who loves to drink lots of ice cold water before going to bed. He can hold his water pretty well in four out of five nights. Each morning he would tell me that he did not pee in his diaper. This morning he told me the same thing even though his diaper was filled with urine. I relied, “Yes, if you are using alternative facts.”
