Sometimes I Wonder

Sometimes I wonder if I'm going to go to Hell because of the lies I tell my children. Those of you who have been following my blog may remember the Toe Curse lie I told Pen. Well, I've told her another one. I just couldn't resist. 

Yesterday, I told Pen that the seemingly uncontrollable eye rolling she is doing is a disease that I read about online. I informed her that the only cure is eliminating all sugar from her diet. (She tried telling me it was something she's doing on purpose, but I told her I was certain it was the disease because I would never raise a child to be so rude as to roll their eyes on purpose! Most certainly not!)

So, I let Pen know that for now we'll just keep our eyes on the disease, but if it gets any worse (or doesn't get any better) we'll for sure have to take steps to try and cure her of her awful affliction! Those of you who know Pen can just imagine her response at the thought of the treatment a cure would require! Oh, I was laughing inside! Yes, I'm quite possibly going to Hell.

If you do, you will be in good company among those who make up stories to teach their children a lesson. You are very clever.

I'm just glad to hear that my kids (well, one in particular) aren't the only ones who roll their eyes.

Perhaps Pen is just exercising her eyes:

Well, if that's the case, she's using absolutely incorrect technique and doesn't hold the exercises for the recommended amount of time!

I'm sure I'll be there with you! Though, I'm not nearly so creative -- I just like to swear!
