How's this one for raising an honest child. Last week was vacation week so we painted my daughter's fingernails. She's not allowed nail polish in Catholic School - must channel the devil or something - but we forgot to take it off Sunday night.
Now, when I tell you you could BARELY see it, I mean BARELY is not BARE enough.
Her: "Mommy! Look what you forgot!!" Holding all ten fingers in my face.
Me: "Oh yeah. We'll take it off tonight."
Her: "Well, I told my teacher about it."
Her: "Because, we forgot to take it off."
Me: "What did she say?"
Her: "Not to show the Principal or her secretary."
This summer I'll have to teach her life's most important lesson - how to keep your mouth shut until you're caught!
