Last night, Hubby was working late. Princess and Bobo were eating dinner. Princess was taking forever to eat, as usual when its was food she didn't care for very much. Which is half of the dinners I make, she is very picky.
Bobo was done and I told her she had 5 more minutes and she needed to be done or there wasn't going to be time for a story after dinner. I set the timer on the Microwave and took Bobo upstairs to play. I had glanced in her bowl and she had several pieces of food left.
I came back downstairs and she said she had spilled her milk and she was done eating..... I cleaned up the milk and stared at her empty bowl... There was no way she finished what was left in the time I was gone. I looked in the trash and there was her food.
She had dumped her food and lied about being done. I was so mad I sent her straight to bed.
If she is already lying to me at 6, what is she going to be like when shes 15.... I'm in trouble. How do you teach a kid not to lie? I'm just glad she didn't get away with it.
