Self-incrimination

I honestly don’t know exactly what was going on in the lounge tonight while I was cooking dinner, but Fainjin came running out to complain: “Mummy, Pearl bit me!”

This is very unusual.  Pearl does not bite – she’s eight years old, for goodness’ sake!  And Fainjin didn’t seem upset or injured, more running to tell tales.

An indignant shout came from the lounge.  “I did NOT! … And anyway you can’t even see where I did it.”

Reprimands were duly dished out, but what I really wanted to say was, “You need to learn when to stop talking!”

  2. Captain Obvious Says:

    Haha can’t say that I have BUT who knows? I was a pretty active child and things like that can tend to happen with hyper kids. I was the oldest though so I dont THINK so. Its more of a younger sibling defense mechanism:)
