It’s Only Disrespectful If You Get Caught

posted by Momo Fali on October 6, 2008

I saw my son standing behind his sister, sticking his tongue out at her.

I pulled him into another room and said, “Don’t stick your tongue out at people. It’s not okay to do that, because it’s really not nice.”

He quickly replied, “But, it is okay, because she didn’t see me do it.”

Which means it’s okay that I took $20 from my husband’s wallet when he went to bed early. Right?

    I think your son doesn’t need to go to school anymore. He understands life.

    It’s not illegal if you don’t get caught, or at least that is how I thought about it when I was 16.

  • meleah rebeccah


    RIGHT! That’s totally OKAY.

    I hate to admit I’d feel the delight of being sneaky when doing such things when I was younger. When my little brothers do such things? Drives me absolutely insane.

  • Rachel


    You’re such an awesome parent 😉 LOL.

    You are too much and that kid of yours… oh mah hell are you in trouble ;-0

    Love it.

    You might have reasoned: if she didn’t see it, then you wasted your effort. But then again, reason itself can be a wasted effort with kids.

    You son already has the mind of a teenager. How old is he?

    I unfortunatly tell my eldest to NOT tell me everything, for if I do not know it can not hurt me (or get her in trouble).

  • A Shade Of Scorpio

    And you pushed out the babies. (It all comes back to that!)

  • O My Blog!


    $20, that it? Take more next time, then if you do get caught, you’ll have more to show for it.

  • DysFUNctional Mom


    Smart kid, he’s already learned one of the basic rules of the street! lol

  • Colleen


    Ha ha ha…I’m with Kimmylyn. I own up to the swiping, too. 😛
