My Kid is a Tattle Tale
I know it is important to teach our children honesty and all that crap, but man… kids really can’t keep a secret.
Example 1: The Munch was jumping on couch, and at times off the couch into my arms. We were having fun, but then I got bored and wanted to get my boots so we could go. Just as I was telling her I would be right back and turned my head, she leapt into the air to jump in my arms and subsequently fell on her head.
“Munch I am so sorry! I didn’t know you were jumping!”
“Wahhhhahaaaaaa! You dropped me!!!!”
“Well, I didn’t exactly drop you, I just didn’t catch you. There is a difference.”
“YOU DROPPED ME!!!”
“Look, I can admit it is sort of my fault you landed on your face, but it is not like I actually dropped you.”
“That is just semantics!” (or maybe what she actually said was “waaaahhhhhhaaaa!!” It’s hard to remember everything verbatim).
I figured we had worked through everything and all was fine until we got to the store and The Munch decided to engage a random stranger as we were waiting in line.
“Mamma dropped me on my head. And I was crying. I was jumping on the couch and she didn’t catch me and I went boom on my head. And I was crying. And Mamma said I didn’t drop you, and I said you did drop me. And I was crying.”
Example 2: As a lady, when going to the bathroom I will most likely say “I am going pee” even when I know full well that is not the only act that will be taking place. But I feel more comfortable with people picturing urine coming out of my urethra then feces coming out of my anus. Just saying. So, I was at a friend’s house and said I had to use the bathroom to go pee.
“I wanna come with you Mamma.”
“Okay fine, come with me.”
(Keep in mind, the bathroom was next to the living room where quite a few people were sitting… so if one were to talk in said bathroom, it would be impossible not to hear the conversation taking place).
“Mamma you are going poops!”
“No Munch I am just doing pee.”
“NO MAMMA YOU ARE DOING POOPS TOO!! MAMMA YOU ARE DOING POOPS!!!”
See! That is definitely poops in there
