What would your child Do
I heard about a new fun thing to do on Wednesdays. It is called What would your child do, to participate go to http://familyamericanstyle.blogspot.com/
I think this wll be alot of fun because daily I am in tears about something my kids say. I know I have told this story before but because some of you may not have heard it I will say it again. Last month my beautiful, sweet, loving, kind, neat freak daughter bought me the soap dispenser from her bathroom. She said someone had urinated in it. I told her it was not possible, that the soap had been green and then watered down (by another child). After she assured me it was urine I took it in hand (mistake number one because it was warm) and then smelled it (why would I do that). I quickly realized it was urine and told her to pour it in the toilet and wash her hands. I assumed it was my 12 year old son, only honestly if you know him you know he would NEVER do that. I brought all the kids in the livingroom and told them that if the person who did this crime would admitt it I would not be mad but if they did not then dad was coming home to pick the container up and have it tested to see whose it was. My precious 6 year old said "okay, okay, it was me". When I asked her why she did this she said "to see if someone would use it". That night I was blogging about what she had done, in hopes of someone giving me sympathy. When she saw me she started crying and when I asked her why she said because my friends were going to tell there kids not to be friends with her. So I told her if she promised never to do anything like this again I would not tell she said, are you ready for it? She said "mommy, I can't". When I asked her why she said "because I did not fil it up!". I did not know what to think or say. Luckily, she has not done anything like this since. I do try to remember to check the soap containers before friends come over to make sure it is really soap.
