Kids Say the Darndest Things ~ Friday
The kids were getting ready to brush their teeth Wednesday night before bed. Emma pulled out some old toothbrushes from the drawer.
Daddy: Where are your regular toothbrushes?
Emma: Mommy can’t find them, so we’re going to use these.
Daddy: (starting to leave the bathroom) I’m sure we just haven’t gotten them out of your suitcase since we got back from Michigan.
Emma: Daddy, they’re not in our suitcase. Mommy already looked.
Daddy: Well, I don’t want you to use those old toothbrushes, so I’ll go look for them.
Emma: (sigh) I’ll go get them.
She left the bathroom, and I followed her into her room. She lifted the skirt on the rocking chair and pulled out the Ziplock bag that had the toothbrushes and toothpaste in it from our trip to Michigan.
Daddy: So you knew where they were, and you lied to me?
Emma: I wasn’t lying, Daddy. I said Mommy couldn’t find them. I didn’t say I couldn’t find them.
