Being the parent of a 6 year-old and a 4 year-old, there’s a lot of finger pointing going on in my house. Last night, I caught the girls playing in Jalen’s room about an hour after we’d put them to bed. I opened the door to find the lights on, Jalen sitting up, playing with her stuffed animals and Emmy dancing around the room like it was the middle of the afternoon.
“What is going on in here?”
“Daddy…um, I think Emmy…sneaked in my room accidentally.”
“No I didn’t. She did.”
“No, that’s not right, Daddy. She did come in my room, but I think she didn’t mean to. It was an accident.”
“She told me to.”
“No I didn’t.”
“Yes you did, Jalen. I didn’t do anything. It’s not my fault.”
