Leo went on a preschool trip to the theatre.
From her theatre office Leomom could hear outbursts of laughter and joy.
Curious, she went to see if her son is laughing with the rest of his class.
She sneaked in to discover that her son was having a good time. He sensed her presence.
Upon seeing her, he smiled back,
but his index finger did something completely contradictory.
With a firm gesture he indicated the door.

- No mom -
said Leo with a smiling face.
