Just kidding

Whenever Mama and I see a trait like this in our kids, we say, “We’re in trouble.”

We know that these traits can only become magnified as they get older. Here’s hoping they use their powers for good, not evil.
Jewel’s most recently manifesting power is deceptive jokes. This morning, she woke up after 3B had been picked up by the school bus, and had this conversation with Mama:

Jewel: Where’s 3B?
Mama: He’s at school. The bus already came and picked him up.
Jewel: No. He’s at the playground.
Mama: No. He’s at school right now.
Jewel: No. He’s at the playground.
Mama: No. The bus picked him up.
Jewel: No. He’s at the playground.
Mama: No. He went to school.
Jewel: Just kidding.

Let’s just hope that when she calls to say she crashed the car, she ends the conversation the same way…unlike her old man when he was 16.
