(doesn't she just looked thrilled to be taking this photo?!)
Alot of the times she doesn't even have to start speaking
we can tell by the look on her face or by the way the words are coming out of her mouth that it's not the truth!
She's come to learn that she has this trait and will usually stray away from even beginning to speak!
It's quite funny!
(honestly folks you don't realize what a skill you have received)
Just yesterday, we found out that yet another one of the youngin's has been handed down the dreaded curse of "I cannot tell a lie"!!!
But first let me backtrack a few days...
Swim class was fast approaching for the little dude and duddette in our life
My boy is 3, and his cousin is 4
The swim class we want them to take starts at 4 years old, this is the only swim class that would work for my schedule and we want them to be together
So I go back and forth trying to decide if I should put him in the 3 year old class
He's already taken a full summer of swim classes last year so has some of the basic skills
So I decide I'm gonna try to pass him as 4
As I'm driving to sign him up...my mind begins
What am I gonna say if they ask?
Will they ask for a birth certificate?
What date calculates to make him 4 years old already?
What if they ask him?
I can't possibly take him with me...he talks too much!
Well I get there and all I have to do is fill out a spot on a postcard that says "Age:____"
wheh...that was easy, all that fussing for nothing!
Ok, fast foward to yesterday...
The first day of swim class! whoohoo!
I pick him up from school and as we're riding home,
I tell him, "Son, if the teacher asks, tell her you're 4"
I look at him in the rearview mirror and he has this look of horror and confusion on his face
"But why Mom, I'm still 3 only"
"My birthday's not here yet"
"I know son, but you will be 4 next month"
So we go home to change into his swim gear.
He says a quick hello to his daddy.
We hop back in the car to head to class and the questions begin?
"Mom, how old is Kaia?"
"Mom, am I gonna be 4 after swim class?"
I text my hubby, your son can't lie, I told him to say he's 4!
He replies, yes, I know, he already told me the story!
(we were only home for 3 minutes, how could he possibly?!!)
Aaaaahhhhh, I shoulda' never said anything he's gonna give it away!!
They're gonna kick us out of class, in front of everyone!!
My mind is racing again, my heart is pounding!
We get to class and they just put the kids in the water
No checking names, no checking in, no asking questions
whehhh...what a relief
As class is closing, the teachers go around asking the kids
What was your favorite part of the day?
Then one teacher asks her side of the swim class...
What's your name and your favorite color?
The kids take turns answering...
The teacher on my boy's side of the class asks..
What's your age??!!! and your favorite color?
Oh no, we're done!!
heart's racing, I can't even look!
my favorite color is red...
he get's it from his mama!
