The Truth is Told!

16 Jan

I have the most amazing great nieces and nephew. I was recently overjoyed to receive the opportunity to sit for the youngest. We got to play, chat, read books, and sing songs. But bedtime came all too soon.

I put her to bed with a song and a book. I put her under the covers.

Not five minutes later she called out for orange juice.

I brought her much watered down orange juice in a sippy cup.

And the little sweetie pie says, “Oh, thank you very much! I’m not allowed to have juice in bed.”

I’ve never before sat for a child who told me the truth without my asking for it … after telling a lie. She made me laugh out loud, and days later I’m still giggling.

Morale of the Story: The truth will set you free … and it might bring forth laughter to the heart’s content.
