trouble ...

Dizzle has gotten in trouble for some random things in her short life. Once, in preschool, she was sent home with a note because she ate too many cheese sticks at snack time. Because of this, it has become customary that when I pick her up from school, the first things I say to her are:

Did you have a good day?

AND

Did you get in trouble?

Most days, really almost all days, she tells me that she wasn't even bad one bit. But, yesterday, I got a different response.

Me: Did you get in trouble today?
Dizzle (looking away): I promise to be super good from now on.
Me: So, you got in trouble? What did you do?
Dizzle: I don't remember.
Me: Really? You have a really good memory. Do I need to call your teacher to find out?
Dizzle(with the fear of God in her voice): No. Don't call her! I remember.
Me: Well, what was it then?
Dizzle (mumbling): I got in trouble because I tried to kiss two boys.
Me (trying my best not to laugh): What? What were you thinking?
Dizzle: That I could.
Me: Well, guess what? You can't. Dizz, we don't kiss anyone who's not in our family EVER. Have fun telling your dad that one.
Dizzle (crying): No. I don't want to tell him.
Me (still not trying to laugh): That's a shame. Because telling Daddy what you did is your punishment. Maybe you'll think before you try that one again.

And with that, Dizzle cried for a half hour straight.

Can I just say that it's really hard to discipline your child when you think the situation is hilarious?

I'm LMAO at this one. Love the punishment.

Shoo is really popular with the girls at his preschool. He comes home nearly every day with stories about one of the little girls trying to kiss on him. The moms always seem mortified, but I think it's hilarious. ;o)

I know I say this everytime, but I love the stories about your kids! Cracks me up.

I usually have the opposite problem. My six year old tells me the troubles of others. Yesterday with the emphasis that her dog had died she said, "can you believe Daniel moved his clothespin to red. He had GUM!!!!"

Oh man! Two boys!? =) She is a hoot! Pretty sure if she tried to kiss LB he wouldn't object. Mine is a lover, that one....

You're doing a good job mom!

S Club Mama said...

oh dear too funny poor girl. I wouldn't want to tell my daddy either

Shells said...

She is going to be SO MUCH FUN as she continues growing up!! Good luck, and keep having fun!!

And what a good punishment, too!

There's a good quote out there I remember from high school, something like: "She didn't know it couldn't be done, so she went ahead and did it." What a great attitude!

I love what Dizzle was thinking!

..."That I could."

Gee, that confident attitude. I wouldn't have a clue where she gets that from. ;-)

Runners Fuel said...

So funny!

joan said...

that is hilarious!

Stephanie said...

Hahahahaah. I love it. James has a lady friend at school. They think they're getting married. His *wifey* would probably be in trubs all the time if her daddy knew how often she kissed Jimmy goodbye on the cheek.

Marlene said...

What a little boy chaser!!

BeePieRuns said...

So funny! My gal has also gotten in trouble for kissing boys and holding hands. Last time she was sick I told her it's from boys... that's helped a bit ;)

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

bahahaha! Love this story! Channel that character of Dizzle's!! She is going to be awesome!!!

TNTcoach Ken said...

I can see it now, the priest says, you may now shake the bride's hand......... LOL

Rose said...

I got in trouble once in school for CRYING. Weird.

I love that her explanation was just that she could. hahahhaha.

Terri said...

Hahaha - no, I couldn't be mad, either!

Beth said...

You have the funniest kids EVER! That story is too cute, and if she thinks the punishment was bad now just wait until it continues as you tell that story well into her teens :)

ajh said...

Funny story although I had a hard time getting past the "note home saying she had eaten too many cheese sticks." If that's what teachers have to write notes home about it sounds like the kids are great! Seems like a pretty small issue to write a note over.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

I am scared to comment, because my oldest is the same. Except I teach at the same school, so I have a hard time looking my coworkers in the eye sometimes. And? They are always such silly ones, like the cheese thing. Really, just funny things and not cruelty!

LookingUpAgain said...

I so want my children to be as wonderful as yours! Too funny! Kissing boys? Gosh! I totally got in trouble for that one in school too ;)

Love and Puppies, Christy said...

Hahaha. LOVE the punishment. And I love it even more that she cried BEFORE she told him. Poor kid knows her daddy too well! :)

FruitFly said...

This is awesome! Reminds me of someone I know ... ME! I totally remember in kindergarten at our babysitter's house, my friend and I would tell the boys that we had a secret to share. Then when they leaned in we'd kiss them on the ear. Cracked me up every time and they always fell for it!

My mom never learned about that one. Thank goodness!
