Kids are lots of fun, they’re just really poor secret keepers. Keep this conversation in mind the next time you have a 007 moment. Children don’t need a shot of truth serum to spill their little guts. The information comes out surprisingly easy.
“Don’t tell mommy… this is our little secret, ok?”
The grin that follows reminds you of the Cheshire Cat. Its so cute you can’t help but grin yourself.
~Twenty minutes later ~
“Did you and daddy have fun?”
“That’s good baby, what did you do?”
“We got the stuff from the store and we got a drink from Sonic and daddy…”
Your ears perk up. Did they just say daddy?
“…drove through this HUGE puddle…”
“…the water was so high that it went over the whole car!”
Crap. Busted… again. Little stool pigeon…
“Really. Drove through a big puddle, huh?”
Oh, here we go. Let’s see—1800flowers.com… check…
“Uh huh, it was really cool! I couldn’t see anything! Daddy said we were washing the car for you!”
The head shake.
Sigh… Godiva chocolates… check…
“Daddy even had to slow down ‘cause he couldn’t see the road!”
UGH! YOU’RE KILLING ME!
The crossed arm, jaw slightly agape, head shake and look combo.
Check Lowe’s ad for much larger dog house… check… wow, this is actually a really good deal!
“Well, I’m glad you had fun. You go play, ok? Mommy needs to talk to daddy for a minute.”
The little Gremlin smiles.
What are you grinning about, you little traitor! You’ll be bringing me dinner in the back yard later, turd!
“Love you daddy!”
“Love you too sweetie…” little…
“Oh hoooney, can you come here for a minute?”
Yes, I’ve been privy to a very similar conversation. Some of you can relate. (Save yourself the trouble and just admit it—I’ve already planted the seed. It will bloom soon enough… you’re welcome.)
What little excursions have YOU been busted for?
(Don’t worry, I can keep a secret! ;^D)
