The kid

Our 5-year-old 'A' told everybody at day care that it was his Mom's birthday. They let him cut out pictures and make a really nice card and we all told him how nice it was even though his mom's birthday is not for another 6 months.

Another time A told everyone at day care that his mom's bike tire blew up in a huge explosion so they had to walk to school. Nothing of the sort had happened.

Wife: Were you talking on your cell phone when you took A to the park yesterday?
Me: No.
Wife: Because A told me that you didn't play with him at all because you were talking on the phone.
Me: No, I didn't take my phone with me anywhere over the weekend. I left it at home on purpose so I could get away.

I am really proud of this little guy for his creativity and self confidence and ability to tell entertaining stories -- but when he tries to get his old man in trouble, then he has crossed the line!

It's time to teach that guy a lesson with some scary stories based on real nearby places and one armed desperadoes.

Then, if you wanna wrap it up like you're really a responsible parent and all, you can tell him that words really do have true or false meanings...

He may have a future in politics... : )

P.S. What's the view from Sweden on our election over here?

I like the scary stories approach. Tell him about the bloody clowns that scratch at his window every night. If he lies again, they're comin' in!
