Leaving it up to the Boy

Lest anyone think that the May children do not get into trouble, (I don't know why anyone would think that!) here is a conversation between me and Carson from the other day.
Me: Carson, why did you lie about that?
Carson: I don't know.
Me: You wouldn't have been in trouble for doing what you did, but you are in trouble now because you lied about it.
Carson: silence
Me: What do you think your consequence should be?
Carson: silence
Me: No TV for the rest of the day?
Carson: No
Me: No computer games for the rest of the day?
Carson: No
Me: No trampoline?
Carson: looking up - How about no school tomorrow?!

Oh, yes, that will do it. Great idea....

I follow his logic! ;o) What a silly guy... it just makes it that much harder to follow through with YOUR consequences then, doesn't it? Miss you all!
