Covering Her Bases

Mom: Schatz, I've got a job for you.

Schatz: What, Mommy?

Mom: Will you take this baby and put her in your toy box?

Schatz takes the baby. Leaves the room and returns much too quickly.

Mom: Did you put the baby in the toy box?

Schatz nods her head yes.

Mom: Are you lying to me?

Schatz pauses, and then shakes her head no.

Mom: Kaitlyn, Mommy can tell when you are telling a lie.

Schatz (eyes get big): What did you say, Mommy?

Mom: Your nose gets a little bigger when you lie to Mommy. Now. Did you put the baby in your toy box?

Schatz (covering her nose with her hand): Yes, Mommy, I did.
