Same ploy, different generation

When I was Julia's age, I remember once I put my dolls & stuffed animals to bed. I lined them up on the pillow and pulled the covers up to their little chins.

Yeah.

Mom saw straight through that.

"That's fine for today, but tomorrow you have to make your bed the regular way."

Julia's version of that is: It's not in the closet, it must be dirty.

Sorry, kid. Just cause you tried it on, or knocked it off the hanger, or even slept in it, doesn't mean it goes in the hamper.

I see nothing wrong, or even devious, about what you did.

Guess I'm just clueless today.

No, it wasn't wrong, of course. But she was right. I was totally trying to get out of making my bed.

Husbands are good for pulling that one too...well, mine is.

Julia and Cupcake share the same tactics. And you're just as happy about as I am, I see!
