Honesty is the Best Policy...

A funny little incident from today...

I'm in the shower this morning, and Logan walks in the bathroom...this is how the conversation went...

Logan: Mom, how to you spell "Lamp"
Mom: L-A-M-P...why to you ask?
Logan: Cuz I'm writing you a note
Mom: Oh, that's nice of you...what is your note about?
Logan: It's a note to tell you how much I love you
Mom: oh, thanks, I love you too Logan
Logan: Mom, how do you spell "Tip"?
Mom: T-I-P
Logan: Mom, how do you spell "Living"?
Mom: L-I-V-I-N-G....why?...Logan did a lamp tip over?
Logan: (not answering right away)...Mom, if Tanner and I did something wrong, it's better if we are honest and don't tell a lie, right?
Mom: Yes, why, Logan...did you guys knock a lamp over?
Logan: Tanner and I put on our CTR rings so we can "choose the right".
Mom: Logan, what did you guys do?"
Logan: Mom, look outside the shower...(then they quickly run away:)

So I look outside the shower and these white boards are what I see:) Too funny. Apparently the boys were playing and accidentally knocked over a lamp while I was in the shower....really no big deal, but apparently they thought it was. So they wrote these little "apology notes". I probably should have told them to be more careful around the lamps, but I was smiling inside because they were acting so cute about it...being all honest and apologetic and everything:)...and I guess that's something I want to encourage:) I was especially laughing at the way Tanner wrote my name like twenty times with hearts all over it...they are already learning the art of kissing up:)
