How do you spell trouble?

I spell it five year old boy!


It seems to me that the poor kid always seems to be getting into trouble. Some self-induced, but at other times I think he lets people walk all over him. Other kids seem to like to tell on him, and he usually just takes the blame for it. Especially one kid down the street, he likes to stop by my door with a tale of what Matthew did.

Two nights ago Matthew asked if he could eat his supper outdoors with the neighbourhood children. This is not an usual occurrence around here in the summer months. So I agreed. When he came in a while later to ask if her could have a popsicle, I said to bring his plate so I could see if he had eaten his supper. He then began a tale of why he didn't finish his supper. I had given him two pieces of bone-in chicken, so I was expecting the bones to come back in. However only one chicken bone returned.



Now the investigation began.

At first it was in the recycling bin. Next it was thrown into our shed. Both, he was told, he needed to retrieve. A minute later he went out the door to get the chicken bone.

I watched.

He went across our yard, across the neighbour's yard and out to the sidewalk.

I just watched.

Four houses down the street he left the sidewalk and went up into their yard.

I watched.

In a minute he returned with the chicken bone! He had thrown it in their flower bed!

Why, my dear boy would you do that?

He had no idea how it got down there. He was stunned that I was standing on the sidewalk watching and waiting for him. He stood firm with his story of not knowing how it got there.

I was thankful that the neighbour didn't see him dump the bone into their bushes, but then on the other hand it would of been good if he had gotten into trouble with them.

These kind of incidents are not isolated around here. Some days I just wonder if the boy will ever learn!

For now trouble is spelled five year old boy!

Well, at least he didn't invent some incredible tale of how that piece of chicken sprouted wings and all. :)

Cute story- but when I look at his picture , it's hard to believe he is trouble...he looks like an angel!

Mighty M said...

Oh boy, I just wonder what was going through his head when he threw that bone!

Oh how funny!! We are starting to deal with things like that and of course lying to cover it up. I am guessing by this time next year I may well spell trouble five year old boy too:)

How weird! Why would he throw it in there?

AudreyO said...

So darn difficult. Kids want you to believe them and trust them. But trust is earned. No doubt about it. Whether a child or an adult, trust is earned.

April said...

Maybe he wanted to grow a chicken? LOL. That is pretty funny though.

Heather, aka Jake's Mommy said...

Pure little boy. No rhyme or reason that us girls can understand!

Kristie said...

Oh no! You are not making me look forward to my little guy being that age! LOL! :-)

jen@odbt said...

That is funny - I think boys just forget. Mine always seem to use that excuse when I ask them a question.

Randi Troxell said...

That Girl said...

Kelly said...

Cute. I love that he knew where it was...but not how it got there.

Nancy said...

ha ha ha ha
why do boys do the things they do...they keep doing it till age 40.
Are you the Pam on facebook??

Sue said...

LOL - I had to laugh at this one Pam.

When I was a kid, sitting around our dinner table of 8, I HATED cooked cabbage (and still do to this day). One night I decided that if I threw it under the table it will look like it "accidentally" dropped on the floor, meanwhile hoping the dog would eat it.

As fate would have it, I tossed my cabbage and it landed... ON MY DAD'S SHOE! I was SO caught and got a second heaping serving of cooked cabbage. So... I feel for your boy! Sometimes these "accidents" just happen - hee hee

Kate said...

Kids are so funny and so smart. Sounds like he can't get anything past you.

Anissa said...

To funny! My 3 know they better do what is right. Sometimes they try to sneak something but mom knows. TFS

Yaya said...

Oh my gosh! That is too funny!

CJ said...

Don't you remember doing crazy things like that when you were a kid? And then, of course, we aren't very good at lying when we are that young, so we are always found out.

That is too funny!! Sounds like something the Princess Nagger would do... ;)
