She stood with her face in the corner.
She was obviously hiding something.
Honestly, I wanted to pretend I didn't see her. I wanted to be a lazy mama. But, I've been telling her "sneaking is sinning" and also stressing the importance of telling the truth.
So, I hung up the phone and got Big Sister's attention. It was obvious that she was eating something. I assumed it was the brownies that were on the counter.
I reminded her that it is important to tell the truth.
I patiently waited to hear her tell me she had taken a brownie.
Then, she opened her mouth, and it was clear she hadn't eaten a brownie.
She breathed dog breath all over my face as she said, "it's dog food."
The kicker was she had a look on her face like she was eating candy, or something equally enjoyable.
I shook my head, thanked her for telling the truth, and sent her to time out.
Then, I went into the kitchen and both laughed and gagged.
Never a dull moment, I tell you, there is never a dull moment around here.
