Okay, so I confess...I have stooped to a new all time low. I bold faced lied to my four year old and have been caught red handed in a lie by my eight year old.
MeiMei has a really cute shirt that I bought on sale to match three sets of pants and skirts that she owns. I full on expected to get A LOT of mileage out of this shirt in terms of outfits. Well Empress Fashion Pants decided that she did not want to wear the shirt because "it has letters on it" "I do not like letters on my shirts." I showed her how soft it was and how it had nice little flowers and sparkles on the arms.
BUT NO....she would have nothing to with the shirt...so then it happened. My mouth opened and out came those fatal words of deceit. "but sweetie...do you know what the shirt says?... it says 'I love chocolate chip cookies'.." "isn't that great? you love chocolate chip cookies!" Right then Noley looked at me and said "no mom that is not what it says....it says adorable!... I quickly changed my words and said, "yes...it says I adore chocolate chip cookies!"
And guess what? She proudly put on the shirt and wore it all day and proceeded to tell everyone she met that she adored chocolate chip cookies.
