So, the bigger child

The growing pains continue...

I had to keep him from a baseball game tonight because he lied to me about having schoolwork to do...for what appears to be a whole week!

I know, I know, shame on me for not noticing sooner. But I trusted the little booger when he said he didn't have anything that needed done. He did...and he knew he did...and he lied to my face about it.


So far, eight isn't any easier than seven was.

hell, the 17-year old still does this. See, he figures he really *doesn't* have work, until the day before it is due. Uh-huh.

My 2.5-year old is responding to attempts to potty train by lying about whether his diaper is dirty or not. I'm not sure what the point of telling you that is, except Kate inspired me. And because I have no strategies around this issue. My parents were super good with the guilt and disappointment act.
