last night when the kiddos got back from their dad's house, my five year old, ky, told us that her brother had been really naughty to her while they were there. she said that when her dad was in the shower, her three year old brother had done the following:
1. hit her.
2. punched her.
3. bit her. twice.
4. threw a shoe at her.
5. kicked her.
6. spit at her.
this is basically the exact same story she told last time they got home from their dad's. and ko got in BIG trouble. i think she enjoyed that. needless to say, we were a slight bit suspicios about her tale last night. so, the bf and i decided to quiz her a bit. the following is based on our actual exchange.
us: "so, ky...your brother was naughty to you again?"
us: "what did he do to you?"
ky: "he hit me, and he punched me, and he spit in my eyes, and he kicked me, and threw a shoe at me, and he bit me here and here."
ky: "yes." (looks all sad)
us: "so, did he kick you in the knee?"
us: "did he kick you in the other knee?"
us: "did he kick you in the back?"
us: "how about in the stomach?"
us: "did he throw a shoe at you?"
us: "did he throw four shoes at you?"
us: "really? four shoes?"
ky: "uh huh." (looks a bit worried)
us: "did he throw eight shoes at you?"
ky: "yes." (starting to sweat)
us: "are you sure? he really threw eight shoes at you?"
us: "wow. that's a lot of shoes."
ky: "uh huh."
us: "are you sure all of this happened?"
ky: "yes..." (looks a bit nervous)
a bit more quizzing revealed that my dearest daughter had been lying through her teeth about her brother. thank goodness the bf was there with me, because i found the whole exchange to be hysterically funny. i felt like we were laywers. for the prosecution. i could barely contain my giggles.
