The Culprit

I am a mommy sleuth...I amaze my kids by knowing who is responsible for whatever it is.  I love the looks on their faces when I say, "Devon, I know you wiped the peanut butter and jelly from your hands onto the blinds, you need to clean it".  Just today, I witnessed Jake whisper in Devon's ear, he then told Devon to "do it!", Devon hit him and Jake yelled "mom Devon needs to go to time out in his room, he hit me!" Devon, looking at him like he is crazy, looks at me and just shakes his head in disbelief. Jake too looked at me in amazement when I told him...."NO! you just told him to do that, I will not punish him for what you did."  They look at me as though I am some sort of amazing all knowing person. Callie, now that she crawls all over the house at lightening speed, has been blamed for all sorts of things she didn't do. Jake will tell me "Callie spilled my chocolate milk while she was playing with Devon's cars"  meanwhile his elbow is smack next to the spilled milk while he is playing with his cars. Devon will blame Jake for spilling the cat's water, when Callie still has her hand on the bowl.  I find it very amusing! I wonder when their deductional reasoning will kick in....or has it already. I have often wondered if this calculating is purposeful, if so I am in big trouble. Until then, I find it very funny when I hear things like "it was Callie that hit Devon, not me!"
