Monday Monday

Today Nick lied to me ... straight to my face and was caught in it. It wasn't anything much he lied about at all, but it was just the fact that he did it like it was nothing. I was very surprised at his nonchalant attitude about it and the way it flowed so easily from his lips! I saw him leave the bathroom this morning and walk straight to the DVD cabinet to find a movie.

I asked, "Nick did you eat already? No TV until you eat and brush your teeth"
He said, "I ate"
"What did you eat?"
"Cereal - I had fruit loops and the bowl is in the sink." - CAUGHT!
I threw the empty Fruit Loop box away over the weekend and there was no bowl in the sink.
"Nick? Did you just lie to me?"
Hangs head and says a muffled "yes"
I explain to him he is grounded for lying to me now so he proceeds to sulk on the couch until it was time to leave.
I reaaly was surprised! He is never like that. I am hoping this is not a prequel of behavior to come.

He's testing his limits - as they all do. Nip it in the bud now.
Best of luck to you!!
