Tired of being tired

I was putting clothes away in Lewis’s room this morning when he woke up. Unlike him, he woke up quite cranky.  When I cuddled him I asked, do you want to go to the toilet – he responded “No, I’m tired”. 

I asked if he wanted to go downstairs and have some (rice) bubbles “No, I’m tired he replied.

Then I asked if he wanted to go back to bed, he made it clear “NO, I’M TIRED!”.

Interestingly, Myles also used this excuse when he was younger and we had asked him to do some sort of chore.
