Last week I went into Kate's room to put some things away. When I came out Ben was facing the corner where the wall and entertainment center meet. I asked him what he was doing and without hesitation he told me he was pooping. I decided to give him some privacy and went into the kitchen. A few minutes later I walked back into the front room to find him holding an empty wrapper, chewing some gum he had found in my diaper bag. My innocent little boy lied to me on purpose! I looked, but there was no space for this in his baby book of firsts! Needless to say, I took away the gum and attempted to explain to him that I would have given him the gum if he had asked and that he should never lie to mommy again. I do have to give him some props though for coming up with a pretty good cover up. He is a smart boy, he gets that from me.
David's december interview trail takes him next to Mayo Florida, UT Southwestern, Baylor Dallas, Texas A&M, Wake Forest and New Mexico. Its a long road for all of us!
