Pride Cometh before the fall defiance

The other day Isaac, Eliza, and I were leaving the library.  Our library has a drive through drop off directly in front of the doors of the library itself.  When I opened the door to walk out, Isaac bolted out, running right towards the road and drive through. 

Sure he was going to run into the road, I yelled "Freeze!"

Isaac stopped instantly. 

I was amazed.  And, if I'm being completely honest, a little proud of myself.  I, some how, managed to get a child to actually STOP when I meant it.  Go me.

That's when it happened.  Isaac, still standing in the same spot, turned slightly to look at me.  He had his two fingers in his mouth and a mischievous smile on his face.  With the same grin, and looking he slowly put his right foot, tip toe first, into the road.

In case you were keeping track,

Go me.
