The way they give away all of your secrets like it's their job.
|Look, up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a plane! No, it's the Secret Spillers!|
It's just what kids do. They have no self-control, no filter.
Hubby was out of town last weekend, and I accidentally put a piece of wheat bread in his special gluten free toaster. I quickly removed it, but not before one of the boys saw me.
And as soon as Daddy walked in the door from the weekend:
"Daddy, Mommy put a piece of our bread in your toaster!" He might as well have said, "Mommy is trying to slowly kill you by giving you gluten contamination."
I was going to tell him and offer to buy him a new toaster. Geez, give me a chance, Boy.
It's not the first time this has happened.
"Daddy, Mommy hit a decorative rock by the bank with the van."
"Daddy, Mommy has Oatmeal Creme Pies in the glove compartment of the van." (This was when we were trying to eliminate all gluten from the house. What? A girl's got needs.)
"We watched t.v. all day. Mommy was on her computer a lot."
Honestly, they get their loose lips from me. I can't keep a secret to save my life. I can't complain, either, because it actually goes both ways.
"Mommy, Daddy fed the baby bacon."
"We ate chips and snacks for every meal while you were gone, Mom. Dad didn't make us eat a single vegetable."
"Mommy, we did not get your Christmas present at the jewelry store."
I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets busted.
Do your kids have loose lips, too? Have they ever ratted you out to your spouse or anyone else? Do you have any other thoughts on this Thursday? If they are a secret, don't tell me 'cause I can't promise I won't tell.
