Lying lips sink ships
Well today Max pulled one over on me.
He said he was sick, so I decided to let him stay home.
So while Danny and I bustled around, packing lunch and eating breakfast, Max, 7, was plotting his next video game strategy.
I had planned to get together with my mom and go to Panera Bread, so I told Max to call and tell her that plans had changed, he did and sounded very cheerful and of course, not sick.
"Are you really sick, Max?" I asked, my eyes searching his.
"Mom, feel my head, don't I feel pale?" was his reponse.
So, because he felt so "pale" I decided that maybe he really was ill.
His brother of cource freaked out.
"No fair, I want to be sick, too! Feel my head."
I didn't feel Danny's head, I just blew my stack.
"All right, I don't want to hear anymore about this! Daniel, you just get your coat on this instant!" I had my best car alaram "mom voice."
Then a small voice behind me said "Mom, I'm gonna go to school."
Of course it was 7:50 a.m. when Max decided that he could no longer be dishonest with me. And he took 20 minutes to change out of his play clothes back into his uniform.
"Max why did you change your mind?" I said as we were driving away.
"Mom, lying lips are an abomination to the Lord."
Ah, Christian private school money well spent.
Anyway, here's your freebie, it's called "All My Clothes Is Camo." Based on Josie's of Iron Orchid Designs, see right (isn't that stuff cool?), post on DST under pet peeves. What she said made me LOL and I thought her comment was the perfect name for my kit.
