The other morning Firecracker was complaining that his tummy hurt. Now, I'm not a cold hearted ogre, but I can tell when my kids are faking it. I was 99% sure Firecracker was faking because he wanted to stay home instead of going to school.
To test my theory I just said, "that's too bad. I'm sorry you're not feeling well. Since you're not feeling well you won't be able to eat any fruit loops after you eat your cheerios." (that's the rule in our house. You can't eat sugar cereal until you've eaten something good for you like cheerios, or a banana etc.)
You should have seen him pop up off that couch! Apparently, he was healed miraculously! Hahaha!
Have a great day!
