If I have ever wondered whether my sister Suzanne's kids or my kids have similar personal characteristics... I now have my answer. 

I was on the phone with my sister when I hear in the back ground at her house...
"Aunt Lemon Stand is my favorite Aunt!"

My sister says "What?"
I tell her that he's only trying to suck up to me and she tells him what I said.
Kasey, my nephew, says "Denial is the first phase...."

Me, "You can tell my Godson that he has just become blog fodder." My sister starts laughing....
This morning Rachel wants to know if I will write her teacher a note because she didn't get her homework done.
Rachel, "I didn't get it done because Erin kept bugging me. It's her fault."

Me, "So if it is HER fault if you finish your homework or not, then it is also SHE who is responsible when you DO get your homework done?"
Rachel can sense there is a trap here and doesn't answer the question. She just continues to complain about her sister being the cause of the unfinished homework.
Me, "OK. So Erin IS responsible for whether you DO or DO NOT finish your homework.... Therefore, she is the one who earns your bonus money for bringing home good grades. That is good to know. I just want to make sure I pay the right person."

Rachel, "Wait....."

  1. Lol! I just love it when kids realize they're in a lose-lose situation and don't know how to get out.

  2. I wish I had a picture of her expression, it was PRICELESS! :)

  3. She has fallen into your trap. Excellent. Bwaaa-haaa-hhaaa.

    If you smell smoke coming from her room, that will be her trying to think of a way to outsmart you.

  4. I can't wait to use that one my nephews... Blog fodder. Oh wait, the bug already uses them for that.
