To think Mindee (3) can talk his way out of anything?

This morning getting them ready for playschool, went to the kitchen, heard girl Mindee crying about her brother being 'not nice'. Marched back to the sitting room and asked boy Mindee what he was doing in my usual cross voice.
"I was just a ghost! Woooo~"
Forgot to be cross, burst out laughing instead (as did girl Mindee.)
Caught him smearing my lipstick all over his face and hair.
"I'm just being a princess, PT!"
Told him to stop messing with his drink.
"I'm just trying to be a green fishie."
And finally, when I caught him throwing all the cushions off the sofa.
"I'm just pretending to be Dylan (his best friend.)
AIBU to be wondering if in a few years he'll be the subject of a thread in Relationships? (Caught my BF texting another woman but he said he was just pretending to be a love rat! WWYD?)

Love the just being Dylan answer
Ds2 is just coming up 3 and has been using the mummy/daddy/Grannie said... Thing for a while.
He did trio himself up once when telling grandad that mummy had said yes then realised mummy was standing right behind him. He actually was quick enough to blink a few times and say I meant daddy said yes.

He sounds hilarious. My three year old prefaces everything with 'But, mummy...', usually said in mock patient voice (mimicking my attempts at being non-shouty parent), before her crazy excuse for whatever she's doing. In her case, it's usually something her imaginary dogs have told her to do...
