Lesson Learned: Crying = Getting Your Way

  • Ky: Is it important to cry?
  • Mom: Yes sometimes it's good or 'important' to cry.
  • Ky: Yeah, it is important to cry sometimes, when you want things that are not yours.

And, there you have it. It's important to cry when you "want things" especially "things that are not yours". All those times I stuck up for her thinking she really didn't understand and had hurt feelings, I was being snowed.

At least she's a
clever little thing.

There is always that reassurance when you are dooped by your kids, that at least you know they are little smarty pants!

Oh and that they still can be honest about there mis-deeds. Means there is still some innocence in it all, right? Evan has been confessing every now and again to "tricking" me.

I've never heard of the saying, 'been snowed', but I like it. Porter hasn't confessed to playing me on his supposed sweetness; however, I have suspected. Little Princess is clever. Keep a sharp eye next time she's eyeing down the leftover Halloween candy. j.k. Your day to day stories with your three wonders are always hilarious. If you were a newspaper columnist, I'd be a fan. ;)

If I remember correctly Steph, the art of shedding a few manipulative tears is what got you through High School. Looks like Ky is a chip off the ol' block ;)
