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.

  • A Buns Life

    THAT, is totally ok….the old addagge is….Do as I say, NOT as I do. 🙂 We say it for a reason, right?

  • Mama Dawg

    I heart your son.

    It’s totally okay!

    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.

  • mdx3mom

    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).

  • Coral

    I have been gone too long! I missed this boy and his antics!

  • A Shade Of Scorpio

    Absolutely. Because you said it out loud in the blog. =)

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

    I am so happy I am not the only one to do that. (the sticking the tongue out..hahahaha.. kidding.. I soo do the 20 swipe.. so much so I actually tell him I 20 swiped him..)

  • 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. 😛

  • Tara R.

    I vote with the kid.

  • Mrs4444

    Love these comments… 🙂

  • Pinky

    You’re the one swiping the 20?
    Sweetheart takes my cash all the time.

  • Weaselmomma

    Only if you you split the money with me in order to buy my silence.
