True or False?
I was teaching my kids what "false" meant, and I gave them a whole bunch of sample true or false questions to answer. I don't usually say manipulative trick questions, but this time I asked, "True or False? I am skinny." My boys quickly yelled, "FALSE!" "So, you guys think I'm fat?" "No, Mommy, you're chubby." "I'm chubby?" I asked, with a slightly hurt tone. "Well, you're just a little bit chubby," one boy said. "Yeah, just kind of chubby," the other agreed. Well, that makes me feel better that I'm only kind of chubby in the eyes of my kids. I guess there's no point in trying anymore. Bring on the cinnamon rolls. And the chocolate chip cookies. Really, bring them over.
