I've been busted.
We got a babysitter the other night. On the drive taking her back home I learned some new things about my children.
1. They told her that I never cook and I always make them cook for themselves.
2. I never let them eat enough and they go to bed hungry.
3. I never grocery shop so they never have food to eat.
So to test my children on these newly found facts, I began to cook.
I made lemon pasta for lunch. FOR LUNCH. Everyone knows that lunch is about hot dogs and sandwiches not full on dishes. That'll show 'um.
Kids: Awww, Mom. You ALWAYS make spaghetti. Couldn't we have something else?
Hmmmm.... that seems to conflict with new fact #1
After lunch I packed them into the car and announced that we were going to the grocery store.
Kids: Awwww Mom... you ALWAYS make us go to the grocery store. Didn't we just go there like yesterday?
Hmmmm.... that seems to conflict with new fact #3
Then I made a nice big dinner including vegetables.
Kids: Awwww Mom, I'm full. Do I HAVE to eat my corn?
Hmmm.... that seems to conflict with new fact #2
Bottom line. My kids will tell whoever whatever gets them the most attention at the time. Of course that makes me a little nervous to see what they'll say the next time we have a babysitter.
Let's just say, I think I won this round. HA!
