Mama: You can finish your kindy snack box if you are hungry

Hugo: I AM NOT HUNGRY FOR THAT

Mama: Maybe you would like to come and have a cuddle because I think that you might be tired

Hugo: I AM NOT TIRED!!!!

Mama walks away and looks over 2 minutes later to see Hugo asleep on the dining room floor where he last was.  Clearly he was not tired, what was I thinking?
