Day 27 of the WWFC writing challenge gives us the prompt, “How did you find out?”

Considering I probably beat MikeWJ in the LENGTHY POST AWARD yesterday, I’ll make this one brief.  I will also be able to read the posts from yesterday… I wasn’t able to get to anyone.  College financial aid forms. Blech.

The first thing that came to mind when I read, “how did you find out” was, “At what age do parents lose the ability to get children to admit a wrong?”

When they are little they tell on themselves.  “Who ate the cookie?”  “I DID!  I DID IT MOMMY I DID IT!”  I loved that age with my children.  They were so honest and innocent and sweet.

Then came the next stage, where you could trick them with ease.

“David, why did you take that cookie when I was in the bathroom!?”  “How did you find out?!”

BAM!  It never got old.

“David, why did you unbury Michael’s dead hamster?”  “How did you find out!?”

“David, why did you pee in the cat box?”  “How did you find out?!”

If only it was that easy now that they are older.  However, there is a good side.  I don’t believe anyone pees in the cat box anymore.  At least I don’t think they do.

  • You are one twisted sister. I love that about you.

    • What is funny is if you were an employee at work and I came to fix your computer, you would see me as the most normal, happy, politically correct person on the team!

    It is a wonderful age when your kids think you have supernatural powers simply because you can look at them covered in chocolate and deduce that they’ve been into the candy, isn’t it?

    HAHAHAHAHAHA! Katherine, that photo is HILARIOUS!!!

    You and I have the same sense of humor, girl!

    Haha! I hope there is no more kiddos peeing in the cat box! Love the photo!

    • No kids peeing in the cat box, but today my dog tried to bury a bone in it!

  • Katherine, this cracks me up. Kid’s do the squirreliest things in the the world and sometimes, I really didn’t even want to know.

    • My oldest still tells me new stories… I see a particular smile on his face and think, “Uh ohhh!” Sure enough he will say, “I think it’s been long enough… let me tell you what happened last year…”

  • That David’s quite the character. When my kids were young I had them address me as “All Powerful and Knowing”. Now I’m teaching my grandkids to do it.

  • How DID you find out? Seriously… I want to know.
    P.S. Sorry about the hamster.

    • The cat box was in a side bathroom. I noticed over a few days that the cat seemed to be peeing a LOT in it. Then it almost seemed FULL. That is when it hit… DUHHHHHH!!!!!! NO CAT pees THAT much! What is funny is I asked David when he was a teen why he did that, when the box was IN the bathroom. He laughed and said, “I was too lazy to lift the lid… and I thought it was cool peeing in a box!”

  • My poor unfortunate children had a mother that was naive and missed a lot of their shenanigans. Oh, wait…that makes them lucky and me unfortunate.
