And oddly enough, it is one of the most read articles here on the Blog... oh, wait, I just checked the stats, it IS the most read article on my blog. Why is that?!?
Maybe it is worth giving a bit of an update on the whole "trust" issue.
Miss G: DAD! DAD! DAD!
Me: What baby? What's wrong?
Miss G: DID YOU eat my CHOCOLATE?!?!
Me: No, I did NOT eat your Chocolate.
Miss G: Because my chocolate is... gone!
Me: Oh no, I bet your Mom ate it.
Bing: No chocolate?
Miss G: Mom, did you eat my Chocolate?!
Wife: Um, yes.
Miss G: WHAT?! WHY?!
Wife: You hadn't eaten it yet. So I ate it. You know if there is chocolate in the house, that I will eat it.
Miss G: But I just got it.
Wife: You had it for 2 weeks. If you can't eat it in two weeks... tough...
Me: See, I didn't eat your chocolate.
Bing: Yes Chocolate?
Me: Miss G, why don't you ask Mom who ate your cake? The cake I got you on our Date Night.
Miss G: *GASP* No no no, Mom would not eat my cake...
Miss G: Mom, did YOU eat my cake?
Wife: Ummmm, yes. But you left it in the fridge!
Miss G: Where else was I supposed to put it!
Wife: You have to HIDE it from me!
Bing: No Chocolate?
BigD: Oh, are we talking about the time you ate Dad's chocolate?
Wife: Hey, he wasn't eating them!
Me: No one told me they were mine! I thought they were the boys. Since when do people buy ME chocolate.
Wife: Look, it's very simple, if there is chocolate in the house, I will eat it if I can find it. You all have been warned.
Me: I think the important thing to take from all this, is that it is you MOTHER who eats your candies. Not me.
Kids: Yes Daddy.
Me: Which means, I did not eat your Skittles.
Kids: You TOTALLY ate our Skittles!
So now, the children trust neither of us. I guess you really can't make/force people to trust you. Maybe in a few more years, they will learn to trust us more... or at least how to hide thier chocolate better.
