All Knowing


We're preparing to have guests this weekend. The playroom doubles as our guest room in a pinch, so the children and I have been sorting, cleaning and organizing all morning. In the midst of this, I heard the baby start to wail from his crib in the other room. Little Miss C darted in to join us, a look of chagrin on her face. 

"C." I said sternly, "Did you wake up your brother?" 

She shook her head, her eyes defiant. 

I sighed, "Sweetie, I don't appreciate it when you lie. Please tell me the truth." 

Instantly, her lip started to pout and she crossed her arms in front of her. "How did you know?" She demanded, her brow furrowed in frustration. 

"I can tell when you're lying." I replied.

Her eyes grew wide. She looked up at me and asked in a small voice, "Did God tell you?"

love this!
and have this a lot at our house too...I've convinced the twins that I have "super powers" to know what is going on at all times - if they only knew how obvious they were :)
