I have a lot to learn about little boys

I finally got Gavin to sleep for about an hour or so this afternoon, and he did stay in his bed the whole time.  After his nap we went outside to play as usual. I noticed the grass was half dead in spots so I decided to hook up the sprinkler and water half the yard while Gavin played. Now, I'm not an idiot, I knew Gavin would end up playing in the water and get soaked. "No big deal, let him have some fun," I said to myself...

What I didn't anticipate was Gavin picking up the sprinkler and chasing me with it. Come on, really? Would a little girl do that? I tried everything I could think of to get him to put it down - bribing, threatening, pleading. None of it worked. I had to run after him and take it away from him, getting soaked in the process.
