Do you ever have nights where your kids tell you something & you think holy crap balls - what are we going to do about this?
Well last night was that night.
After Everett was in bed and asleep, Aubrie informed Jade that Everett got in a fight on the school bus on the way to school yesterday. Apparently it was so bad that the bus driver had to have a high schooler break it up as she was driving down the road.
That was all we got. No one called from the school, Everett never said a word about it. So Jade & I are sitting there puzzled. What the crap - I can't believe the school didn't call us & what really happened. Did Everett start a fight or did another kid start it and he finished it? He's VERY impulsive, but he never just starts fights with strangers.
So at breakfast we ask Everett about it & he claims to have asked a boy to move that was in his spot, he pushed the kid, and then they got in a big fight. We then proceeded to threaten him with his punishment that he'll get a spankin' with the paddle next time & if he keeps it up they will ban him from the bus. He was devastated.
So after they left on the bus this morning, me paranoid of what they were doing, I told Mom the saga. She suggested I call the bus driver, who happens to be the same driver that drove me to school. So I call her up, and she is as surprised as I am, because none of the above was true.
They seriously embellished the entire story.
He has been good on the bus, just a few moments of standing in the seat looking at the people behind him, but he just turned 4 so that isn't shocking.
So yes tonight, we discuss lying.
They are full of wind those two kids of mine, big windy stories...I wonder where they got it! Ha!
