lying ...

If you have ever checked out my DailyMile posts or Facebook page or this blog, then you probably know that my nightly workouts consist of running on my treadmill and watching NCIS. I love that show and I love my treadmill. And on the rare occasion when the USA Network doesn't have three or more back-to-back episodes on, I have a moment of panic.

J loves the show too. He's seen every episode. So, he "gets it." Our kids, well, our kids have never seen it. At least I think. Yesterday, I learned that Dizzle may be watching it on the sly.

You see, I made pumpkin brownies for dessert. I took them out of the oven and told the girls not to touch them. Both Dizzle and Doodle were hovering. Again, I told them not to touch them. That they could have one if they ate their dinner. As I turned around, Doodle yelled (which is kind of her normal volume), "I'M NOT GONNA TOUCH THEM!"

I turned back and Dizzle said, "She's lying." I asked her how she knew. To which she replied ...

"She's looking to the left."

What?!?! How the heck did she know that? And then G reminded me about my NCIS obsession. And said it might be rubbing off on Dizzle. Hmm. Well, I guess there are worse things.

hahaha, your stories about your kids crack me up!

I like NCIS, but have you seen Lie To Me?? It's a million times better!

I love when you post about running and watching TV ... I always feel like such a phony (running wise) because I mostly run on my treadmill (though I usually watch Biggest Loser or now that new show on MTV, I Used to Be Fat). I love a good outdoor run but my schedule is rarely conducive to it, plus it helps me with pacing.

Also, thanks for the sticker! As soon as I can clean off some of the dirt on my car, I'll slap it on and send you a photo. Cheers!

Very funny!!! I miss my treadmill! I was with you...loved to watch my Real Housewives while I pounded out the miles!

I am laughing about this because we are NCIS people too. My 10 year old lives for the weekend marathons. I knew we were in trouble when they started talking about Gibbs and Zeva like they were part of our family. Might be time for the Warren's to back away from the TV.

Oh this post made me a little sad. Army Son and I used to watch NCIS together all the time. Now I won't watch it without him. BooHoo moment over.

Your kids a so funny. Great qaulity to have in life.

Point to remember from your post:

Don't look to the left when talking!

T makes pumpkin brownies but don't touch them.

Dizzle is a human lie detector.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for my sticker. It's the first one I've gotten.
