I have not been acting up!
To Mom. I thought I'd give her some help.

我没在捣蛋!
在妈妈的心理,我“认为”。。。。

作者就故意要一贯作业捣蛋的他,明明知道妈妈并不这样想(他妈妈作壁上观等他爸爸来收拾他),偏偏用来当挡箭牌。
用“认为”才能彰显捣蛋鬼也学会大人的To say one thing and mean another; to flatter, to deceive; to lull suspicion in order the better to work mischief.

i think Dennis is telling his father that he is helping his mother because he wants to.when in reality his mother told him to help . he would rather be somewhere else.

he would rather be somewhere else.
From the looks on his face, I don't think that is true.

adeley  Guess what?   Post time 2012-2-1 09:00

you can replace the word "thought" with guess.  In American English, "I thought"  most of the time means nothing.  it is often a way to begin a sentence.

In this case, actually the  mother wants the husband to help with the dishes.  (In USA hsubands washing dishes are very common even though we got machines; but small loads are done by hand -- not to save money, but to be GREEN with the environments = save water.)

the key here is "she gave me the idea"  That is mom's idea that Dennis is to help.
Dennis the Menace is known for breaking things. The Mom wants the dad to see and get the picture that HE should help out.
