At What Age...???...

...does a child learn to tell a fib?!
Here's the story...Gunnar has this habit of taking my scotch tape from the dispenser, of course he can't tear it off so there ends up being long strands of it and I find it stuck to everything, drives me crazy!!! Well this morning Gunnar showed me the tape wrapped around his finger and went on to explain, "The dog did it mom." I looked at him and said, "Gunnar, the dog did that???" We then proceeded to have a discussion (or argument) about the fact that I KNEW the dog did NOT wrap tape around his finger. After some long talking he admitted that he did it and apologized for "not telling the truth" Deep inside I was really laughing. NOW don't let this red faced boy fool you...he wasn't as upset as he looks he just takes after him mom when he cries, his face looks horrible. See how quick his mood changes?

The guilty party!

Ha Ha! That is TOO funny, Chandell! I know just what you're talking about. Kids come up with the most 'interesting' little things, don't they?! And by the way - Peytie does the SAME thing with our tape. And it drives me NUTZ as well... oh, the joys of parenthood. ;o)
