Our first camping trip

We recently took our kids (Son with SPD, age 4, and daughter, age 1) camping with some friends for the first time. Our friends have kids who are about the same ages as our kids.
Our friends' little boy was having a difficult time falling asleep in their tent. My son wasn't helping the situation by being noisy in our tent.
I went in to talk to my son. I told him he needed to be a good boy (and just to clarify, I never call him a bad boy) and be quiet....bad choice of words....
My son, still laying on his sleeping bag, began to shout over and over at the top of his lungs, "I don't want to be a good boy, I want to be a bad boy!"
