So Busted!

Do you see anything wrong with this picture?  Look closely.  Besides the dust and the sconce not being hung straight, look at the glass holding the little decorative pebbles and candle.  I was vacuuming yesterday and noticed a few little pebbles on the carpet and went to put them back in one of the sconces. I looked at them both to see which one had more so I could even them out and I thought, what the heck. They aren't the same size. About a year ago, the kids broke one of the sconces throwing a ball in the living room and so I had to buy a new one from Home Interiors.  For half a second, I thought, crap, I got the wrong size and never noticed it and all this time they haven't matched.  As I looked a little closer, I noticed that if I turned the glass sconce it had a handle on it just like the little glass mugs I have in my cupboard.  Oh, someone is so busted!  I knew right away it was probably the oldest kid in this house because he is quite ingenious. I started laughing because he was pretty darn smart to use this mug and I could just picture him panicking when it broke and trying to figure out what to use so I wouldn't find out. If he wouldn't have left some of the pebbles on the carpet, I probably never would have noticed it because the handle was facing back so you couldn't see it. I couldn't wait for the kids to get home from school. I knew he had some partners in crime or someone would have tattled by now. When they got home, all at different times, I asked if they had anything to tell me about. Reagen wasted no time telling me that Dallon did it and gave me full details. The other two giggled when I asked them and they realized I knew. I tried to be mean, but I started laughing and then gave them some lecture about how not telling about something is just like lying. I don't know how seriously they took me. As for the mug, I just turned the handle back around and eventually I'll get another sconce or use another mug so I have a matching set up there.

I LOL reading this. You did the right thing laughing with them- hard for me to do sometimes. You're an awesome mom. They'll remember your lecture so much more since it was a funny time.
